I've been noticing the odd bit of spam slipping past spamassassin; might
be worth upgrading mozilla and using it's bayesian filtering technique.

kinda reeks of viral marketing ala supergreg. get ppl to forward some
innocuous looking message with crazy loons around, then a few months
later use characters/themes from that message/website in advertisments.
a nice tactic in that people forward the spam on for you. This one might
be for a home-extension/renovation company about to do a marketing push?
Or it could all be a lot less sinister and just be someone who's really,
really pissed off.
