what the hell is the point?

I've gotten spam before, usually trying to sell me something. Recently, however, I've begun receiving the strangest spam - blank messages. They're arriving at my yahoo account, each from a different 6 letter/number combination @yahoo.com, and each one is totally blank in subject and body. What is the point of this? Do they think someone will reply to "confirm" the email address is live? Today I got some bogus Spanish "free trip to Disney World" crap from similar addresses, but most were the blank ones. It's just weird, that's all.

But I suppose that between random blank emails and the "Enlarge your male pensu today!" emails, I'll take the blanks.
