I've received a variety of junk messages ...

which is not ideal.

I recently found a message labeled as spam with "On nullstellensatz" as its subject. This isn't the only time a math term has turned up in this context–earlier today I was treated to "so mcclain go matroid"–but it is the most sophisticated language I've seen in the Pynchon-esque maelstrom of unsolicited commercial email.

If they really want to reach the algebraic geometry crowd, they should go beyond the relatively pedestrian terms nullstellensatz and matroid. Imagine eye-catching phrases such as "Resolve your too small singularity NOW!" or "Satisfy infinite polynomials with finite basis".
