Love letter from Grace

This email slipped through Gmail's spam filter just now:

Subject: Hello

My name is Grace, i saw your profile at (www.cpan.org) today and became interested in you, i will also like to know you more, and i want you to send an email to my email address so i can give you my pictures for you to know whom i am. Here is my email address (gracejobe16@yahoo.de) I believe we can move from here. I am waiting for your reply in my mail. Remember the distance or color does not matter but love matters allot in life.

Yours Grace.

I don't know whether I should be sad or glad. Glad for the fact that cpan.org is considered popular enough to be worthy to be phished, or sad that no sites go unphished these days?

I don't know; she sounds nice. I think you to might just be able to beat the odds ;-p

Maybe she genuinely thought to herself, "any man who can write Text::sprintf is the man for me!"
