Strange.  The 4 copies I got all said "Todd Peterson" (whom I know as e-labs)
and had e-labs in the "from."

Subject: Re: [ADMIN][OT]Todd is SPAMming us

I just got my copy this morning!  Oh joy.  Its SPAM because,

1) Its unsolicited (I didn't ASK for info here or on his site.)
2) Its a mass mailing
3) The senders identity is purposely hidden in the headers (why would
a legitimate business do that????)

Further more,
4) He hasn't apologized
5) He hasn't stopped, even after the uproar.

If he had just posted the exact same product announcement to the
list, we would not be screaming, LARTing and complaining.  Posting
announcements that might resonable be of interest to the list members
is specifically allowed.  If you don't follow the rules, you deserve
all the ire, boycotts, and LARTs you get.
