Spammer crosses the D'oche Limit (Stupidity NonEvent Horizon) once more

Not entirely sure what to make of this, but I suppose it’s better than 4500 messages in one day telling me how good something called “Software 3000” is (if you see anything called that, please hit it with a sledge for me. repeatedly.) — the original message is of course utterly bereft of MIME types or charsets:

Have you scored any blog comment spammers yet? They write a seemingly 'normal' blog comment (albeit a little bizarre) and add a line and link saying 'oh btw, I have a modelling|hip-hop|car tools blog/site, check it out'.

They didn’t even try for normal. The spam looked pretty much like email spam, sans obfuscation.
