[ale] curious spam

Here is a theory.  Suppose you want to send an encoded message to 
someone, but you want to hide who the recipient is from Uncle Sam?  Why 
not just send it to thousands of email addresses disguised as spam, and 
then let them guess who the real recipient is?  I've been getting what 
looks like ordinary spam, but which contains several lines of what 
looks like encrypted text.

Just my paranoid thought for the day.
