Chris - please see if you can find out if it *was* your message.   A few weeks
ago, I posted a note to NANOG, and somebody on the list is infected with malware
that took the From/To/CC list and stuck them onto a spam for "enhancement
pills".  In near real-time no less - the site that caught it had its "your note has
been quarantined" notice to me some 8 minutes after I hit 'send'.  When they
fished it out of quarantine, it did indeed have my NANOG headers joe-job glued
onto the spam.
