I think the module perldoc is amusing, but the letter writer has a point.
The name is A::L::NIGERIAN, not A::L::419SCAM (e.g.).  Even if the email is
a counter-windup (not impossible), or we think that the person who
complained is too sensitive and insecure, the module author has crossed a
line here. I'd let *him* explain it. :-)
