I am not a robot spammer

Based on the huge number of mail bounces I’ve been getting today, it looks like an unscrupulous somebody forged my return address on a bunch of mail. Perhaps you even sought out this blog based on the distinctive domain name.

Some subject lines in use:

it’s so nice to write to u

maybe your lady


It is me!

It wasn’t me. It’s all to easy to claim an email is from somebody. And putting an unsuspecting schmo through all this apparently makes the message 0.003% more likely to get through filters deliberately trying to block abusive behavior.

And don’t worry: I haven’t (yet) got any really irate people. It’s mostly automated bounces from when an email address on the spammer’s list no longer exists. Carry on. -m
