Spoofed @mikeabundo.com Emails

It has come to my attention that certain people have been spoofing emails from "kevin@mikeabundo.com" and "george@mikeabundo.com".

Please don't be deceived by these bots. I haven't given emailboxes to any "George" or "Kevin". Only myself (mike@mikeabundo.com) and a handful of my closest friends have @mikeabundo.com emailboxes.

To the operator of the "George" and "Kevin" bots, I have your IP addresses and connection times. Quit spamming random AOLers with your Compass account.

About 25 US states have adopted legislation prohibiting spoofing. Washington, Illinois and Maryland explicitly prohibit spammers from sending commercial e-mail messages that use a third party's domain name without permission.

@ ardythe: actually, it just goes to show how many people would like to kill him.

@ ardythe: What Miranda said. PS Miranda, you completely blow my mind, especially because I have just read your watchdog posts on themediaslut. You are a brave woman and I salute you.
