Are you suggesting that we are receiving unintelligible e-mail because some
group [terrorists, fbi, cia, csis] are trying to send messages to each
other.  Do you supposed that they are sending a lot of them and getting the
e-mail addresses wrong or that they are sending a lot of them to confuse the
trail to the intended recipient?

If you were to ask me, I'd say that this is similar to the book _Snow Crash_.
Microsoft is sending out these seemingly unintelligible e-mails and anyone
that looks at them has their brain 're-wired' into liking M$.

  "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't out
   to get you."
