    Spam can and will get as stupid as the people who fall for it and buy the product.
    Therefore, spam's stupidity is unlimited.

    Was it really stupid?
    Does your email program have a spam filter? If so, was this treated as spam or as a normal email?

    The thing I'm wondering is, how do people even sign up for it when it clearly isn't human-readable.. or do they respond to the email?

    I'm going to try to decipher this and get back to you in a few -- oh never mind, I give up already. That's just stupid, I agree.

    I guess they just hope that people see keywords and try to piece it together.

    Then I guess it turned out to be stupid. It looks like it was some kind of attempt to fool the spam filters.

    I spend a good part of my day deleting spam because if I don't, it tends to pile up and take forever to delete. Spammers have become really crazy and completely taken over by unbridled greed and total disregard for their victims but hey, the show must go on I guess. Send them all to the salt mines in Siberia I say!
