I'd be willing to accept any amount of spam provided the spammers send me a bitcent (BTC 0.01) for each spam.  Like hashcash, but better for my finances…  Grin

Yup.

This has to be a joke, right? "interblag", "may the coin be with you", "moar monies", "to write high qualety spam mail", "my wallet.dat, my virginity, my family and my mind in teh last few weeks"?

I also got this spam. I assumed it was just someone on the forum trying to be funny.

It amused me so much that I almost sent a little tip their way. But then I thought about how much that tip might be worth someday.
