Spammer deplores the ice of silence

As a rule, we trash spam emails without reading them, but we couldn't resist looking at this one, which seems to have taken two years to reach us, as we didn't receive it until June 2005:

Wondering what "all kind football" referred to, we googled "yousaf janjua," and found this message, which reveals that Mr Yousaf also sells leather gloves:

Sorry, Mr Y, we don't sell boots or gloves, although we've written stories about boots on trees and football played at towns called Rugby, which perhaps explains how we got on your spam mailing list. But, all things considered, we think we'll maintain the ice of silence.
