New type of spam warning: The Literary Quote form

In the last few days several emails trying to sell me mortgages have got through my multi tool net, those dirty rats.

For those of you who did not recognise it, the title is from the first lines of H.G.Wells' War of the Worlds. Which my bayesian filter would not have caught, because I live where the book was set, and so quite a number of words in the text appear in my valid emails.

I try and keep track of the variations using the article Spammers Will Always Win. Which will get updated shortly with this one.
