Attempts to poison bayesian systems

I've been noticing loads of mails like this lately:

  Date: Sun, 21 Dec 2003 16:25:34 +0500
  From: "Joseph Jenkins" <qyzeji@canada.com>
  Subject: Re: MIT, rest in peace!
  To: admin@vnl.com
  X-Mailer: mPOP Web-Mail 2.19

  emery atrocious larval drippy elate incontrollable raster anglicanism
  checkerberry feed sit ajar saturable decathlon
  already climate inhibition pagoda narcissus expository toni

I can only assume someone out there is trying to attack
bayesian systems by loading them up with all sorts of
normal words so that good mail gets false positives, thus
breaking the systems.

I presume others are seeing this?
