The 'idiots' are simply a bug in the statistics processing. If you look
carefully, all those bogus e-mail addresses end with the tail of a
completely different DNS domain.
My guess is that due to a bug sometimes a \0 is forgotten at the end
of the string after putting the e-mail address in it.
Luckily, it should be pretty easy to correct those entries again...
