RE: Strange message possibly through nanog mail server

From: william(at) []

I Just received this. I would like to check if others
have received it and did it indeed come through nanog mailist

It came through NANOG, delivered from a Hotmail account that accepted it
from Yes, that is a military IP, and most definitely not
the first time that spammers have relayed emails through compromised
military machines.

Spammers broke federal law long before the YOU-CAN-SPAM act.

For some reason, Peter Schroebel was CC'ed. You can read more about him

Character attacks such as this one are pretty common against
anti-spammers, we also had one attempted at Brian Bruns just days ago
here on NANOG.
