Fw: Not Hackers.. just poor security on your list !
- To the links list We have identified the individual who mailed the
jokes to the list last weekend. His defense is that he did not hack
into the list but instead used fraud and deceit to post material on
the list to post his advertisements. The proper term is spoofing an
address and is much the same as if you used a fake identification
to cash a forged check . Lynnlynn was wronged by this person in
that she lost 400 subscribers because they did not appreciate the
filth he posted. he also posted the jokes to various help groups
that she belongs to that banned her and removed her from the list.
I suggest that if you think that what was done to you or Lynn was
wrong you email him and tell him so. he obviously doesn't think so
and shows no remorse for spamming you.
He may be reached at mystacy@... or megawoo@... or
He also has a couple of lists called cerberus-jokes and Funnybone
International that you may want to steer clear of or unsubscribe from
William Brabant co-owner LynnLynn's Links

Your talking as if i stole something from you,
all i did was post 20 jokes with an advert in each
You are a links list after all, they were links !
So, unless they're off-topic (maybe the jokes were
off-topic) i posted links to a links list.
- On-Topic for that list, - not really 'spam' as such...
What i did do was to make you aware that anyone can
post to the group, if they really wanted to, using
whatever e-mail address in the from line they choose.
If you'd had the moderate all messages option checked
they would not have got through and onto the list.
If you do decide to 'reveal me' to the whole list,
Do include this e-mail in your posting, and also
forward it to the places you have reported me to
aswell. - So that everyone will know the whole story
and not just your edited highlights.
