Re: [GPSL] Don't Open Ralph's Email
- Hi Ralph,
You got spooffed. The sender was your email address rather than
your more familiar "Ralph Wallio, W0RPK" email moniker. And the
Subject line was also atypical: "Re: Re: Message".
I got a spoofed spam from "myself" once, pushing a porn site, of all
things! I was so incenced that I set my son the warpath to launch
a DoS attack on the server that sent it. No more such nonsense
in last 2 years. The key to controlling spam lies with the servers'
acting to stop it - but until they all quit taking kickbacks, it'll
keep on coming.
