is anyone else getting these one-question mails?

this morning, someone with a hotmail account sent me mail asking:

> Hi,I want to know is Erlang suitable for writing an IDS (Intrusion
> Detection System)?Please help me.Best Regards

I answered "Yes.". Just a few minutes ago, a different name with a
yahoo account sent me mail saying

> Hi,Can I use Erlang programming for HPC?Thanks for your guidance

Notice how neither of 'them' use spaces after punctuation.

Is anyone else getting these? It feels a bit like a bot. A bot which
asks marginally relevant questions about Erlang. How odd.
