Fake emails

I have received returned emails that have not been sent by me.  I do not have outgoing capabilities on those email addresses, so it couldn’t have been sent, even if I was hacked.  Basically, it is spoofed email. The sender pretends to send from one email address, when it is actually sent from a totally different address.  If you have received spam reporting to be from me, I am sorry.  However, there is nothing we can do about someone spoofing our email address.  The email spammers, wiki spammers, and comment spammers have no respect for others.  They are leaches that vandalize that which others create to scam unwitting people. Administrating websites means dealing with the problems these vandals cause.  I could rant some more, but it will do little good.  Just learn to assume something is spam unless it is clear that it is legit.  Even then it is better not to click, but to act independent of the email (type the proper url directly into your browser rather than clicking).  We do not send spam.  May your inbox be every free of spam.
