About a spam titled: "Your ebay auction payment"


I read this one and it had an interesting paragraph (emphasis is mine):

    order confirmation. your order should be shipped by January, via
    fedex. your federal express tracking number is doltish.
    thank you for registering. your userid is: inane
I've seen these messages before, but I've never seen one with such an appropriate pair of 'tracking number'/'userid' words. I guess that these people don't have much respect for the people (suckers!) who click on the embedded URLs or reply to the message. They also don't seem to have have much quality control of their messages. What do you think?
