It’s not bad enough they fill my mailbox and harass my phone. Now they’re sending out their crap pretending to be me, by using one of my domain names as a “return address.” Yeah, I know, it happens all the time. The support guys at my hosting site (let’s hear it for sff.net!) say it’s a spam blast from a distributed botnet of compromised machines around the world, using my hijacked domain name. It’s not coming from my account or site.
But it’s still infuriating. I just want to let the world know: If you have been bothered by spam or scumware claiming to be from anything at [writesf – pointy symbol – com], it didn’t come from me. I’m sorry.
And there’s not a thing I can do about it.
But you know, there really ought to be a special level in Hell for spammers.
