the message

(for reference, that mail is available online at

looked a lot like non-sense spam to me and I reported it as such in
the BTS. And obviously the one reading that report was of the same
opinion. I wouldn't be surprised if others hit the "Send a report that

If you want to make comments about bugs that people should actually
read, please make sure that your mail is concise and does not tell
fairy tales to hide your intent. The BTS is no literature contest.
