Hi Wayne,

I venture that this phenomenon is just proof of somebody's zeal, her/his
time and effort spent over the long periods that you have observed to be
relatively spam-free. If my wild guess comes anywhere close to truth,
the wave of SPAM shall remind us that there are people everywhere, even
where we expect just cold, dead machinery at work.

And if I am right, this will not last (both). With “awesome” (as usual)
quickness, we will find ourselves back on the island of beatitude and
forget.
