With a subject like "tofu saguaro" I had to click on it. It looks like spam's back to the regular diet of word salad. But this one forgot to try to sell something.

Evil non-breaking <pre>-formatted headers! Cut tag, please!
29th-Jul-2008 12:17 am (UTC) - Two theories
I saw one of these this morning; my theory is that if a lot of these turn up they're either trying to pollute Bayesian databases with garbage to reduce their effectiveness, or poison them by training them to recognize HP's X-Headers as spammy.

Another possibility is that the bizarre IP addresses in the "Received from:" header are intended to break or perhaps even exploit software that tries to do a reverse lookup on the "address", made up of 48-odd bit "octets".
