Hi folks, sorry if you got spammed recently by Orlin Technologies
(Richard Rooney). I got 2 copies of the spam myself -- looks like he
harvested the mailing list email addresses. Actually, I'm not sure
what all he harvested, since one of the 2 spam came to an email
address that I don't think has ever been subscribed to the list.
Anyway, we didn't approve, condone, recommend, suggest, solicit,
encourage, etc what was done here. In fact, we'd strongly recommend
that anyone else who's thinking of doing such a thing please not do
so. It probably violates laws in most jurisdictions -- certainly
does in the EU and the US. Plus, it's just annoying, and with the
audience on this list (and in this broader community), highly
unlikely to generate much business for you.
