The XXXXXXXX one is NOT a WTF! presumably mr. submitter did not submit the entire letter. The yellow form is normally signed by the person owing the money, so the bank can transfer the money. In this case the health insurer had probably given the submitter money in return, but "had" to send one of these letters, marking the yellow form with X's for the recipient's benefit.

They're called Euro-cents, presumably because "cents" was already taken.

Well, the floating chimney can be explained as a part of the building that is behind the display, however it does look like they set up a giant backdrop between the display and the building behind it with a poorly drawn scene from another city.

A part of me says that the display is just a retail POS display and they snapped a picture of it in front of a model backdrop to make it look like an electronic billboard gone awry. But then several of the details in the picture and on the display lead me to believe that it really is an electronic billboard.

That's not an Error'd. The bill is probably settled automatically and the standard form is overwritten with X's to prevent the customer to accidentally use the form to make another payment.

This happens all the time on my bills.

It's still pretty silly. Putting x's over the amount and account number is what is usually done, and is entirely sufficient. Here they've unnecessarily filled everything with x's, even the information field and the stub (except, for some odd reason, the account number).

I believe it is just a nice city scene painted on the side of a building in order to make a run down (I mean, "working class") neighborhood look not so bad.

The XXXXXXXXXXXX thing is not a WTF. This is similar to the IRC password incident. See, when you see XXXXXXXXXXXX (a medical condition), I actually see XXXXXXXXXXXX. It's the latest technology being used across the globe so that personal medical information remains anonymous in real life and on the internet.

For example, I've been diagnosed with XXXXXXXXXXXX, but I'm not afraid to submit that, because it's automatically hidden from you guys.

Heh, I do like the spam one. I keep a folder of all the most amusing spam I've gotten, and that beats them all. For instance, I do have one from a few years ago with no attachment, and a body consisting entirely of:
Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7Bit

Also one with a title of "(no subject)", and a base64-encoded file in the body (no, I did *not* decode it to see what they sent me.)

Then I have one whose title informs me that it will impart secrets on "how to always be full of beans", but that's different.
