    I get these all the time, I think it is just spam gone mad. Sometimes, buried in all the nonsense is a link, but I've never tried clicking them, never know what might happen.

    It's a way to try to get around modern spam filters. Filters can check whether the content is comprhensible (to some extent). Like if it's 10 words long and one of them is "viagra" then it's probably spam. But if its 1000 words long and one is "viagra" then it might not be spam... so it seems spammers copy passages from books into the email to make them look less "spammy".

    Ok, so i dont know exactly how it works, but that's what it's there for.

    Here's the BBC news story on it that I read a while ago - it explains it better:
