I don't understand why they needed to use such offensive variables. :-P And it's not like they expected you to only look at the html version- this was it.

I'm assuming they're placeholders for database fields or something.

%CHILL - The message to get the person to chill out and read the spam

%DICK - The addressee, way to respect your potential customers

%CONTACT + %URL - email/site

%BYE - Closing

%ASSHOLE - Spammer's name (hey at least he knows what he is!)

Sorry! I'll make sure to have that fixed for next time.

omg, it's because you're using old UNIX technology. If you were working with a modern object-oriented XP.NET framework for the Enterprise you would have never run into this problem! Have you considered an XML-powered RESTful API with a nice AJAX interface? Clearly, that would exponentially increase your overall synergy bandwidth.
