Random-keyword spam

While I must officially condemn the current form of spammage (which inserts randomly-selected keywords in the hopes of avoiding spam filters), I have to say that it's often remarkably amusing.

I mean, the one I just got (to the SCA Question desk) is so keyword-laden that you can scarcely even see the spam message itself -- I actually had to go hunting even to find it, and they managed to bollix up the link to their site badly enough that it's unusable. But it's kind of fun to start my day with the surreal subject line, "HOHMZU! receipt! the receipt!"...
