I know of one person who came very close to receiving the spam that
was destined for his system. A spammer forged my Yahoo! address as the
sender, so the challenge came back to me. I was sorely tempted to
frustrate him; but I managed to hold my pixish humor in check...
Oh, and I won't really click on challenges. Honest. The one I got
could have been an address harvesting scheme for all I knew. No policy
on how they would handle my e-mail address. So I have determined that
I will just bit-bucket challenges.
And one auto-responder from a recipient, saying, "I can't see you!"
I still have over 100 of the nearly 200 bounces in storage; I've been
meaning to look through them for MailWasher bounces so I could
lambaste those idiots.
