Found at the bottom of a spam message. Fascinating word associations.

hearst mccluskey strung suite savant chipmunk amphibole nielson tass
runyon splint suckling did crystal areawide satan tetrachloride
carlyle impromptu chairperson annals davit chad clothesmen

I think it is to thwart spam-filters. I'll give you $2 if you can guess, in 10 guesses or less, what the spam was.

(7) I'm a hot blonde who likes to have all my holes worked
(8) Improve your vocabulary in 30 days!
(9) Free Freaky Horoscope!
(10) Get your Master's degree online in 1 year!
Am I close?

Those are generally personalized enough -- and try to seek normality -- that they slip through anyway. This is a case of an HTML message where the typical (non-pine) user wouldn't see any of it.
Forgot about those, haven't seen one in a while
Take our survey!
