FriendlyGreeting is Expanding

Because the messages now reference well over a dozen domains. Of course, they
have the ability to create even more subject lines than they have domains, so
I'm not sure what a winning strategy would be here. You might be right that we
should go after the domains instead of the subject line. I sure would like to
think we have a handle on this before the next one hits - it can make a pretty
big mess pretty quickly.
