It probably wouldn't matter whether it came from the sys admin or
individual subscribers; chances are he wouldn't read it anyway.
Seems to me the best thing to do is ignore it. Or sometimes it
makes me feel better to send a message to postmaster or admin @ the
poster's domain, but often the return address is faked or the
account is about to expire anyway.
By the way, I didn't read the message but as it was scrolling past
I saw my name in there, so if anybody did read the message, I just
wanted to say the Bill Brown listed is not ME. I try to make
money the old fashion way :-).
