[filmscanners] ADMIN: LIST suspended



Hi,

DO NOT REPLY TO THIS MAIL - IT WILL BOUNCE.

Due to a spam/abuse incident filmscanners@halftone.co.uk is temporarily
unavailable. Any mail sent to the list meanwhile will bounce.

Similarly, listserver@halftone.co.uk is also offline.

If you wish to unsubscribe urgently you cannot do it yourself at present.
Please email me personally - mailto:tonysleep@halftone.co.uk - and I will
do it manually for you.

I'll send a further email when the list is back.

(If anyone wants to know what happened : a #%*ing spammer sent a spam
attempt to listserver from a spoofed <someone>@<stupidserver>.com address.
Listserver gets about 1,000 of these a week, and did what it always does,
bunged the offending mail back to mailer-daemon@<stupidserver.com>,
indicating that the mail contained no good commands.

Unfortunately, mailer-daemon@<stupidserver.com> was somewhat dimmer than
usual, and promptly returned the mail to listserver...

From: MAILER-DAEMON@hollister.com (Mail Delivery System)
Subject: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender
<MAILER-DAEMON@hollister.com>: host 204.62.195.84[204.62.195.84] said: 550
     MAILER-DAEMON@hollister.com... No such user

...thereby forming a nice mail loop.

Approx 5,000 iterations later, my hosting co. exploded and they froze my
email facilities. We are having full and frank discussions, pro tem.
