Ineffective Spam

Every few days, I check my discard report for the spam filter that I use to make sure that it's not blocking any mail that I really would like delivered. I've not had any problems with it, but it is interesting to see some of the subject lines for spam that has been discarded.

Today's gem: %RND_TXT

Seems to me that someone doesn't know how to configure their spam mailer to create random text to use in the subject line.
