Huxley Associates: not malicious, just stupid.

[ #34541 ]
A full fifteen days after emailing Huxley Associates to stop their spam, I just got an email from them with the subject "EZ CR DATA PROTECTION REMOVAL CONFIRMATION_10729672". It was empty apart from a massive (1K of text) signature - with a malformed signature separator, naturally. Attached was a 106K Word document called "DATA PROTECTION REMOVAL CONFIRMATION_10729672.doc". Here's what it said:
