Went to the P2P Dim Sum lunch today; it came out to about $30 bucks a person! Ouch!

Chatting with some folks there, we came up with some crazy conspiracy theories around spam. What if spam is actually sent by intelligence agencies, but a message is hidden in either the individual message or over several messages using steganography? This reminds me of those strange beasts of the cold war called Number Stations, which were channels on the shortwave part of the specturm where mechanical voices intoned a seemingly random series of numbers. No one still understands what these are, but they were probably spies in other countries using shortwave to transmit encoded information.
