They're spam, and depending on how you are accessing this group you may or
may not see them. Alas I do see them.

Just delete them, please please please please do not reply to them and try
to argue with the spammer. Occasionally we have either well-meaning but
foolish people who think that replying to spam, quoting the entire spam
message in their email, and sending to the list is somehow helping. Of
course the spammer isn't reading replies!

Either that, or they are actually spammers themselves, and their cunning
ploy is to *pretend* to be replying to spam in order to get their message
past the spam filters.

So don't be one of those guys.
