MavEtJu's Distorted View of the World

Political spam

Over the years, I have published various email addresses from the @mavetju.org domain in my weblog. They have been harvested by spammers. In this article, I published a From and a Reply-To field which don't exist as an email address: ryopdx@mavetju.org. It also published a Message-id: UHUh4a7dWj6_CpI3ZmfY@mavetju.org.

Imagine my surprise when I found two emails from Clive Palmer, the head of the Palmer United Party, in my mailbox:

From: clive.palmer@news1.palmerunitednews.com.au
Subject: A Message From Clive Palmer
To: ryopdx@mavetju.org

and:
From: clive.palmer@news1.palmerunitednews.com.au
Subject: A Message From Clive Palmer
To: uhuh4a7dwj6_cpi3zmfy@mavetju.org

Looks like he got his list of email addresses from a dubious source!
