I've gotten a lot of mail, and seen this submitted - a porn site has sent mail using the Slashdot.org name, purporting to be Slashdot.org. They are not. We don't, and will not send mail out using your name. Click below for the full text of the message that was sent out. Update: 06/17 12:56 by H :Current going theory (thanks to Mark Rietman) is The list is the one maintained at distributed.net. This is because they used my email@example.com adress (which i never use anywhere else). It's a list open to public (team stats-page --> memberslist) Update: 06/17 01:09 by CT : I just wanted to apologize. I'm getting a lot of hate mail, and I just want to reiterate that we didn't do this, and that I wish bad things would happen to the bastards who did this. I consider forging email to be among the worst of all net.crimes. And don't visit the site or you'll just encourage these pricks.
