Spam from VoteNader.org? (Or naderexplore04.org)

You may have received spam email recently that appears to come from our
campaign, or be about our campaign -- perhaps the "From" and or
"Reply-to" addresses look like they are coming from VoteNader.org. Or
perhaps you have received a message that appears to come from an
individual (if the address is real, the real owner probably did not send
this email either) with suppressed recipients. Or maybe you received an
email that appeared to come from yourself promoting our site.

These messages are NOT from Nader for President 2004, and these email
tactics are NOT condoned by our campaign in any way.

UPDATE: Some of the latest forged emails have been made to appear to be
coming from naderexplore04.org. Again, we are not responsible for this
unfortunate abuse of email, and there is little in the technical sense
that we can do to prevent this as it has nothing to do with our actual
infrastructure. We are collecting information.

NOTE: The emails with malicious code (viruses, worms, etc.) often have
attachments. Our campaign will NEVER send attachments in our
announcement emails to you. Please be sure that you have anti-virus
software and have the latest updates available for your anti-virus
software.

Our hosting service has alerted us to say that Nader for President 2004
appears to be the target of what is called a "Joe Job." Such an event is
where a spammer forges email to make it appear to have come from some
other domain (such as ours -- or yourself). This is hard to prevent on
our end and part of the insecure nature of the email protocol in
general.

Members of our actual email list must request to receive email from us
(either through Ralph's signup sheets or subscribing during our
exploratory phase, or now on our campaign site). When one signs up for
email they must reply to a confirmation message before they receive our
list announcements.

Our public announcement emails come from "camp...@votenader.org,"
contain a "Paid for by Nader for President 2004" statement at the
bottom, and have "upd...@lists.votenader.org" in the "To:" header.
Unfortunately, some of these indicators can be forged as well.

Most of the Spam that we have received complaints about appear to be
forged from email addresses not associated with votenader.org (often
forged to appear to be coming from government email addresses), and have
our website code embedded in the body of the email with hidden tags that
contain random words that work to subvert anti-spam software.

If you are on our lists, you can ALWAYS unsubscribe at ANY time by
following the instructions included at the end of our announcements. You
can also use our unsubscribe page using the email address you signed up
with.

If you are receiving this SPAM, we extend our apologies.

We will pursue the spammers to the full extent of the law.

possible.

people like him are really rare in this world. He
actually blamed the society for losing him family and children, he said
the society is too corrupt, which is some what true many many human
beings today don?t even know the results of their actions and what they
are doing and why.

By the way Mr. Graham Sayers last year had told his other Jewish
students that I(and my next generation) was worth thirty thousand
dollars since the day Azeem Hakani changed and gave me some secrets
(like I shouldn?t get marry etc). Graham Sayers also told his Jewish
students that I am the only one who has not fallen because everyone else
around me here and there has already fallen or something.

Basically Jews have been running the business of buying next generation
of every talented Muslim, as they think we are their slaves or
something. I think bad guys should back off now, and stop killing
Muslims around the world and these people should stop terrorising the
world, before it gets a bit too later for them.

May God save us from the fitna of Satan and those who are fighting
against humanity and God. May God bring truth and unbiased justice back
to this world again and give us all the ability to obey him properly.

Catching a croc. :)

Assalam u?Alekum all :) (Late 2000- 2001 )Abu Omar who was living in
Newport claimed that he is Jordanian Muslim but as it turned out he was
Jewish. His sympathies and work was only and only to support Israel. I
hope that by the time he dies he will know his reality in this world. So
this man called me a few times to his house and his computer was not
working and it needed to be fixed. I did not know he was Jewish. So
after a while he got a bit sick of all this exercise and gave me
something in tea due to which I felt pain in my lower back and got feve
