some kid that gets an ego rush out of seeing his fake e-mail on snopes, and/or forwarded so much that it gets back to him.
you know how when you hit "forward" it copies virtually everyone's e-mail address in the header of the message for most e-mail/webmail clients? well, if/when it lands on the desk of an e-mail junk lister, they harvest out those e-mail addresses, and thus we all get more spam.
hurray! yay! yipeee!
