The recent 'Adult Site Hosting' spam to the list appears to have
originated from a small ISP in Sacramento, CA (bfp.net). It was, if I read
the headers correctly, relayed through a pair of overseas servers in an
obvious (and fairly pathetic) attempt to avoid being traced.
I doubt the spambag responsible was counting on an experienced
spam-fighter being one of the recipients. ;-) I have filed a complaint with
the Sacto ISP, and I doubt it is one they will ignore considering that the
message violated both California and WA anti-spam laws (third-party relay
without consent, no clear "From:" address shown).
If you want to call the 800 number shown in the message, and leave some
words of wisdom on the spambag's recorder, I would do so from a pay phone.
Many of the 800 numbers have ANI, which means if you use your home phone
they'll have your phone number.
We now return to our regularly scheduled nuttiness.
