No, but I thought if I got in ahead of everyone else I might stop a
flood of complaints. Really :-)

You all do realize that this person's computer may have been infected?
I've been receiving plenty of emails exactly like this: no subject, 1
link in body (which always redirects to some online pharmacy), almost
always from people I do know personally.
So I'm lead to beleive that is possible the sender didn't intentionally do this.

About the only clue would be to ask the list maintainer. If they
subscribed immediately before the spam, then no. If they've been a long
time subscriber, then quite likely. I don't recognise the name or
address.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I
read messages from the public lists.
