Is this really Google spamming me because LinuxChix Live‘s robots.txt file is a universal block?
This line at least does seem to imply that it came from their netblock (the public google.com IP addresses also begin with 216.239):

That’s kind of … uncool. One might almost say… unsolicited commercial email.
I did get something like this once before and forwarded it to firstname.lastname@example.org, only to get an instantaneous automated reply telling me that any spam I was reporting could not possibly have come from them.
Perhaps it didn’t and it’s a rather more competent header forgery than most spam. The forensics will be interesting in that case.
