Need Help Debugging?

Do you need help debugging your automated spam machine? Cause it looks like your script is broken. Or is this just your way to tell me:"Let's cut the red tape, this is spam, you know this spam, we know you know this is spam, so we wish to tell you that we know you know this is spam, by not bothering to insert American names in your mail header which your automatic spam detector will detect anyway.

Or was this because they simply harvested spam@granada.merseine.nu, which I gave some sites I did not trust, and the word spam causes a bug in their scripts?

Anyway, is this not nicer this way?

Either way it's bad programming. I once got a spam message which was basically just perl bitching about "use strict"
Careful with that line of thinking... The same people who brought us "Videogames => violence" and "P2P => Piracy" might now think of "Perl => Spam"!
This looks like the syntax of Perl's Template-Toolkit, which embeds directives inside [%...%] tags.

...and then I realized that are much more (ex-)spammers among my friends than I expected.
