Don't let the spambots get you down

The latest in dreary text that gets through the spam filteres:
flowers sick funeral after orphans visit widows
fatherless write letters invitation condolence establish
Related words look like sensible language to Beyesian filters. Perhaps it helps if the words are associated by a similar mood. This is further evidence that (1) the spambots are approaching linguistic competence, eventually becoming moral persons and (2) when they become persons, they will be pathologically depressed.
