The message with the Russian subject line, just sent by the above
member, is a spam link probably caused by a "phished" Yahoo mail
account. DO NOT CLICK.
This person has been a member in good standing since 2007. I am assuming
that this is a case of a compromised email account, not a spammer
subscribing to the list. Accordingly, I have not banned the member but
rather have placed their account on "moderated posting status" to
protect the list.
If you are the owner of that account, this is a protective action for
the list's other members, and is not intended punitively. Please contact
me off-list when you have worked with Yahoo tech support to clean the
account, and I will re-enable your posting. In the meantime, you are
still welcome to post; it will simply require moderator approval.
MODERATORS: Please feel free to approve non-spam posts from this person,
but DO NOT change their posting status until we know the account is
EVERYONE: I'm not going to repeat my long explanatory text, because
you're all sick of reading it by now, but please take this as a warning
to be careful that you don't type your passwords into fake login pages.
Phishing attacks are 100% preventable by education and careful surfing
habits. Don't be the next victim.
