From what I can make out, they are added to emails which AOL believe to be spam.

Im I missing something there appears to be no answers on the link just pretty much the same question I asked? –  Alistair Prestidge Mar 18 '11 at 9:20
Sorry, I may have copied the wrong link. –  Kyle Hudson Mar 30 '11 at 19:06

I think it will either end in g or s depending on whether aol think it spam or not. Fear not however, I have received spam from both.

Can you cite some kind of source for this "thinking"? –  voretaq7 Oct 9 '13 at 20:28
