I am getting it also, and am a little puzzled by it. Most Spam is trying to
sell you something, or find live email address, or infect you with something.
This spam appears to have no function at all.
I get some other that is html. It doesn't make much sense, but is a little
more grammatically correct then these. I keep my email program set on text
only. That spam could be fishing for good email addresses, as hidden in the
html is usually something that will let them know when the html is executed
so to speak. But this new stuff is text only and won't even do that. So why
even send it???
