This theory does not explain why it is so focused on debian-user,
where it is very unlikely to find a receptive audience.
Further, if this spam shall sneak through spam filters, why does nearly
all of it bear that peculiar URL domain ?

You may get to a less easily refutable theory by saying that somebody
simply wants to annoy us. (By using painfully dull means. So evil.)

But i prefer the idea that there is some reason behind this and we are
the public test area for something more insidious.


Have a nice day :)
