|Even spammers can't write software well|

It's just sad when even spammers get software wrong. Check out this piece of spam I received today:
<$$text> <$$text> <$$text> <$url1>?<$mcrypt> <$$text>
That's right, the template to the spam message they intended to send. Clearly our programming models are too hard if even spammers make these kinds of mistakes.
It's also worth noting that the $mcrypt variable is a tracking id that will inform the spammer that the email address they sent out worked. Don't click on those links.
