The "Very Important letter. You require to read"/"Significant letter. You need to read."/"Grand message. You should to read."/"Weighty letter..." spam-flow looks to be a stayer.

The Stock Spam Effectiveness Monitor only looks at occasional examples from the cavalcade of pump-and-dumps, but there are several other places you can look if this area of human endeavour interests you.
