Variation on a Theme

Do spammers actually believe that the software program used to generate their messages can do an end run around spam filters?

I have received, in my spam folder, scores of various misspelling of "I am looking for a date." I'm not good at math, but those letters surely must contain scores of additional possible rearrangements. So I expect them to continue for some time.

My favorite, thus far: "I am loobaking for a date."

You know the old saw, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. But "baking in the loo"? That's a fail.
