I dunno, but Karl just plain didn't read what I wrote. I said >I< have
been hit, as well as a friend of mine. I think it's malicious. Plus, it
was later responded that Gary Hypes isn't a throw-away, but a real
person, so just how in the hell would you know, Karl? You don't. Plain
and simple. You did one of your guesses again. Don't do that, unless you
state that you ~guess~ it is a throw-away name. That would be truthful.
So no, someone is spoofing on gmail and it is happening more and more. I
think, therefore, I shall go and complain to them. I merely asked if
anyone else was seeing this. :) Ric
