You have been receiving more and more of the following by email lately:

Or this, a little easier to decrypt:

This is not a failed attempt at free-form prose. It's a snippet of a spam message intended to promote a sexual stimulant, a deliberate crack at sneaking past and spoiling some of the most popular antispam filters.

But The Register has been fact-checking this against a real spammer. Yes dear: Sp@m: the myst.eries xp1ained!!!

Following Occam's Razor, I say that El Reg is right. Besides, none of the above tricks have fooled my Apple Mail filter, QED.
