Word of warning. We had an opt-in list spammed over the weekend someone
subscribed to (and confirmed subscription to) one of our lists and then
posted an ad for an adult site, using a hotmail address which they then
abandoned (it started bouncing shortly thereafter).
The subscription came from a dsl line attached to wannadoo.nl.
apprpropriate abuse complaints are going out, but admins ought to be
aware we've seen someone willing to go through the confirmations to get
the spam in. without giving the site too much publicity, you might want
to content block any message mentioning happyhug in the com TLD.
so far, we've found three lists from two hotmail addresses. it doesn't
look like it was scripted, it looks like an individual.

Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh
nervously and change the subject.
