I think they're probably *not* from different people precisely because
they're so similar.  Although they purport to be multiply forwarded
"flong" messages like the virus alerts that sometimes circulate, note that
these have none of the multiple "original message" headers, layers of
>>>>s, and random line re-wrapping found in genuine flong.  I think they
are the work of just one person, or a very small group, with multiple
different forged From: addresses.

I've received 18 copies so far.
