Based on this description, these look like what I believe are also
called Web Bugs, which spammers use to snag your email address from you
when you open their HTML mail messages. I have an anti-spam program
with a "Revenge" feature that scrubs your information from these web
bugs, fills them with either a random garbage message or a carefully
worded message of your own, then sends that message to the spammer's
web server every two seconds as long as you want it to.
