They are phrases and words that are just used as they are given, they are 
not glued together at all. They are just for things such as the SpamCheck 
header which can contain "not spam" at the start of the report when it has 
been told to always include the header even when the message isn't spam. 
That's why I included a line of explanation above each one that tells you 
where it is used.

I agree that sticking these phrases together would be a very bad idea.
