And I did not take it as punishment either. Just wanted to let everyone
know that I'm on top of the problem at my end, and am retiring that e-mail
address as fast as possible. I'm not the first to get hit with this crap,
and likely won't be the last.
And while this is OT, it's important - don't just change your password.
While they had access to my e-mail account, they added a forwarding e-mail,
so that they were going to start getting all of my e-mails. Heaven knows
what a disaster that could have been. For reasons unknown, besides changing
the password, I was looking at my other settings. The odd forwarding
address jumped right out at me. So if you get hacked, CHECK YOUR SETTINGS!

Thank you, My Lady; we appreciate your corrective actions.
I should have mentioned in my note, and I apologize for not doing so,
that the moderated-posting setting is intended only as a technical
protection for the list. It is not in any way meant to be punitive
against you, as we understand that you are a victim and not the culpable
party. I wasn't meaning to punish you, just to protect the other list
members from further posts by the attacker. Again, I'm sorry if you felt
otherwise; I usually mention the non-punitive situation in my posts but
forgot this time.
