XML pr0n spam as a way to make money?

Actually I don't see anything wrong in using XML and entities
for mailing list management (if you can dignify spam with that
title). Clumsy, inefficient, and architecturally horrible, yes,
but the only thing that actually seems to be wrong with the 
example you quote is that it didn't get resolved. Like they
care, anyway?
