      Just starting recently I've been getting 25 or more unwanted emails a day, selling several different unwanted things, but all with the same tag at the bottom, a company in New Zealand . . . fyi, if that helps; no need to respond if this doesn't help

      The number of persons who are having their "identity" spoofed and messages sent out that just consist of a link to some wierd-looking website has been growing steadily the last month.

      You won't get any such message from this particular yahoo group, because we are on a sort of emergency "shut-down" "every message is moderated" status at the present. It is hard to predict how long this situation will last but as long as the hacked/spoof messages continue, the list will remain "moderated". This is unfortunate because of course the moderators are not available 24/7 to approve legitimate messages so it impacts on ongoing discussion threads by slowing down the message flow.

      Needless to say, even if it appears that your "very bestest friend in the whole world" is sending you an email that has as its entire contents a link to some website you've never heard of, *don't* open it (the link, that is)!!! If in *any* doubt as to a message's legitimacy, check with your friend *before* opening!
