If you want to be a spam reader and talk about what your spam is
'saying' -- people like me are going to criticize you for reading it in
the first place. If the justification for reading your spam is supposed
to be that you think the SEC should get real busy and put up a serious
investigation of a pump and dump scheme, then you should realize what is
wrong with that idea.
Just exactly who should the SEC jump up and investigate? The sender of
the spam? The item I'm looking at in sightings looks like this:
That is the same item you pasted sourced from an open proxy
18.104.22.168 rDNS o-255-023.hosts.cablelink.de at the .de space of
Leschinsky & Schneider webmaster at Kabelfernsehnetz-koethen.de -- typical
for stock spams doesn't have a payload website.

I fail to see how your 'investigation' of spamreading is going to be
able to help some agency do its business.
