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 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 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

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

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 ","
contain a "Paid for by Nader for President 2004" statement at the
bottom, and have "" 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 (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

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

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

guys were trying to program me to
commit suicide, yes even then.

Firstly the good cop though I was trying to commit suicide, then they
tried to test me, but I did not touch the machine the other person who
did this was never ever found, but they kept Nurse on hook, all I can
recall is as the someone came in after jumping over the back wall. This
is kind of tragic, like if Nurse was really trying to help may be she
suffering just because she was good. Anyway that day 10% of my heart was

During the operation they discovered one of my kidney was disabled, they
though it happened in 1995, but in 1995 only my name was destroyed,
kidney was disabled when I was young. No one wanted me, so they
concluded I will stay where I was and I will continue going to school as
if nothing had happened. He actually gave me biological weapons to
enable the kidney for a while, but during the last few days it was take
out, he said that he does not want to donate a kidney to black man,
funny I though it was all about moral values. Even though I am telling
you exactly what happened I don't think he meant what he was saying,
somehow he had to say that

I still can?t understand if they erased my memory to make sure I give a
different statement I did as they told me that I was injured in a car
accident, then why the kept giving me injections. Why would good cops
burn my skin with cigarettes, I just don?t understand some of these
things. I think essentially because good people were too scared to face
bad guys, it gave bad guys the chance to essentially direct the events
the way they wanted. Because today we are doing what we could have done
four or five years back, and I honestly don?t understand the point of
giving injections later. But during these few years, I think my body
