You get keys with "2010" in the user-id. About half of those returned
by pgp.mit.edu have a 2010 creation date...

Plenty of people send mail using server software on their own
computer, particularly those who move around and connect to the
internet via a plethora of different ISPs and WiFi locations. That
doesn't make it "correct". But being sent from an RFC-ignorant server
does not make a message spam or illegitimate or invalid. It just makes
it slightly more suspect.
