Yeah. The bottom of the original message had these words: "used
computers in chennai". The most likely reason for that is that there
was an <a href> around that, which got stripped at some point (maybe
the post got converted from HTML to plain text somewhere). So these
postings are being approximately useless, and will hopefully
eventually stop.
