Stupid F***ing Spammers.
Posted Dec 15, 2003 - 1:58:18

Note: I'm poor, I need money to eat. If you can spare a $1, $3, $5, whatever -- I would appreciate it so I can make my next webhosting payment, and hopefully my phone-bill too.
Okay, so -- we all hate spam. But I've discovered something worse: Having the spammers put my e-mail as their "From" field.


See, I usually get 50-125 spam messages a day. Now, I'm also getting 25-75 "DELIVERY FAILURE" messages from various webservers out there, because of the stupid spammers, and their outdated lists.

So, if you recieved spam from a address, please understand that I DIDN'T SEND IT.

But, here's the header information from one of the delivery failure messages:
Received: from (HELO (
by with SMTP; Mon, 15 Dec 2003 14:22:13 +0900
Received: from [] by with SMTP; Sun, 14 Dec 2003 22:20:40 -0700

So, yeah. The spam isn't my fault, so don't blame me. It didn't even pass through my server -- they just listed my server as the return address... and have forced me to delete about a bazillion error messages... yeesh.
