Spammers forging email from

It would appear some Y^$%&($#%& have been forging spam from my email address at

I use GnuPG to PGP sign all my emails. If you get something from me that isn’t signed with GnuPG then it’s unlikely that I’ve written it.

I don’t spam, I hate spam, and the emails in question have never been near a system I control.

From the headers that I’ve seen they seem to be being sent from an IP address in China ( belonging to “CHINANET hebei province network” as well as an IP address in Venezuala ( belonging to CANTV Servicios, Venezuela.

I’ll be taking this up with them when I get back from work.

Where’s a big LART when you need one ?

    PS: I tested your key after a recent post of yours in’s maui list.
