The depths of my paranoia

Just out of curiosity, I looked at the source code for some spam telling me I could get any degree I wanted...huh. And here I am doing it the hard way....

Anyhow, it looked strange. There were all of these words on the page, seemingly random: janissaries, airport, striptease, and many others. Then there were these letters, and lots of <, >, !, and -. After a bit, I finally figured out (I have limited html knowledge, mind) that the single letters were outside the <> and the whole words were inside. So I guess the words were there to mess with any filters?

But before I came to that assumption, my mind went on several flights of fancy about mass-mailing hidden messages.
