Altering the spam to force the system to find a url that it doesn't find on
it's own is against the SC TOS/AUP. Spammers are trying to avoid SC and
other systems that look for urls in spam messages. I suspect this copy/paste
spammer idea won't last long when they discover that people that are stupid
enough to buy from spammers are too stupid to copy/paste. Actually we have
seen these sorts of shenanigans before and I guess we will see them again.
