That's good in an odd sort of way -- besides reassuring us that their spam
filter doesn't simply pick up key words in "Subject", which can go wrong (I
have a friend who insists on writing to me sometimes with the Subject "hey
lordgroundhog", which unfortunately is a formula used by spammers, and my
work address sometimes gets legitimate "important information" posts), it
also means we've been able to have a legitimate conversation about an
illegitimate piece of e-mail.

I do like smart filters.  ;-)
