    Most commercial spammers hit open SMTP relays w/ custom software written for the purpose of sending mass emails. Not hotmail, etc.

    Well I love this move and was wondering if they did something like this currently. I hope more email companies follow.

    It's about the 4th or 5th random thread he's bumped from 2003 in the last couple days -- none of them relevant to anything and none with any additional comment other than 'bump.'

    It's usually the type thing you see from a Chinese spambot when they need to get enough posts to start posting garbage, but I'm not sure in this case why. May be time for a mod to look into things

    Please stop. Further "bumps" will lead to loss of membership privileges.
