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.

then you should have enough courage to face the
consiquences. This man and any other man like him should not be allowed
to leave the country, it is about time we hunt all these terrorists and
murderers down.

He frequetly met Governor General every time GG was in Melbourne, he
told McMahn "I want to kill him(McMahn), while I had no idea what was
going on", Abu Omar had told us that he will not move away from here,
Abu Omar, Mahmud Kurchu, Amir Butler, and GG were also framing Muslims
and Christians in conflicts, like the China Town incident, where lower
level cops kept telling sercet service's Jewish GG, look Mohsin does not
know what is going on, but he tried to kill me that day, because I was a
threat for Jews a living threat a proof of their true picture and they
wanted to burry me before anyone could find out. I only want to know why
this man (GG) gave me biological weapons that day, what was my crime.
GG, Abu Omar, Mahmud Kurchu, and Amir Butler should be arrested and
charged for raping, supporing racism, using his position to destroy
Christain-Muslim friendship, creating events to controls minds of
ordianry and threatening local cops.

People I want to know how long will you sleep, how long will you blame
each other, it already is getting a bit late, how long will you stand
aside. When will these corrupt jews stop raping Muslims and Christians,
and when will you question the game they have been playing with Muslims
and Christains for centuries.

May God end the days of extermists and terrorists soon, may God free us
all
