Empty and incomplete or otherwise flawed spams generate more discussion
than than they merit, I think; they aren't more 'important' [or even
interesting, to me] than regular runofthemill spam. Both of those IPs
are proxy/trojan spamsources. The mechanism for sending/injecting spam
thru' a proxy system is quite fallible, since it isn't a normal smtp
transaction process -- so one possibility is that the injection pathway
failed while a real spam injection was being attempted.
Others who like to think about or imagine what spammers are thinking
about when or if they /are/ thinking may postulate more 'spammerthink'
