Has anyone else gotten a very strange spam-like mailing from "List Boy"
(firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject, "Architext would like to
index your mailing list", followed by a list of (in this case 100)
apparently random list-owner or list-server addresses (none of which
were lists I have anything to do with)?
No contact information, no explanation, nothing. My reply is
appended. Has anybody heard of these people?
