Let me propose a different reason for posting this here.  I recognize this
is not the stop-spam list.  It is, however, operational.  Barry originally
raised the issue Sprint was "trying to read the mind of their client."  Two
people responded they had been spammed heavily from the same source, two
people not at world.std.com.  I just got hit again; the addressee list, I
think, is recent posters on comp.dcom.sys.cisco.

These reports help give ammunition to pass back to Sprint that this is not
an isolated incident.
