I incline toward the troll theory. The spam showed up in my inbox about the
same time as a legitimate post from Roman, which is the perfect time to troll
a fake spam, but too time correlated with Roman's post to have been run up
the approval ladder in a competitor.

That is possible, but the message seems to have come from a google server:

It also has DKIM and DomainKeys signatures, but I have not verified them.

We're all in this alone.
