I have 521 messages that match:
	To:		nanog*
	Subject:	new message

In the last week. Obviously that includes things like Jay’s message below, but still a lot more than 100.

It also hit [email protected], and probably other places.

Of course, I’m very upset about that. After 500+ tries, they did not spoof my name once!!! Guess I’m not important enough. <pout>
