Sounds like you got on a spammer's list.  Someone already asked you, 
what proof do you have that it came from this list?  Please answer that.

unfounded accusation and makes unfounded accusation sounds, it is 
usually an...unfounded accusation!

Calm down, get a grip, and analyze your system, dude.

Do you GNU <>?
