Responding to an offer via LinkedIn

I got an email from a recruiter at a well-known "web 2.0" company via LinkedIn. How should I respond?

The message was basically "I saw your profile; we're looking for talented people; let me know if you're interested in discussing opportunities." As far as I know, I have no connections with the guy, and the company is 1500 miles away. I'm a software engineer.
On a scale of 1 (spam) to 10 (you were highly recommended by a respected mutual acquaintance)... where does this type of email fall, and what's an appropriate follow-up?
