the good, the bad, and the "fuck you and the horse you rode in on, spammer"

The bad: some fucking pharmaceutical-pimping retard with nameservers in Arizona, webservers in China and Korea, domain registries in Costa Rica, a telephone operation in Great Britain, and a pool of hundreds or thousands of compromised computers to relay his mail through - mostly ADSL users - has decided to use random text strings @jimbosworld.org as the reply-to in his spams... so I'm getting about 200 bounce messages per hour from spamfilters catching his shit and/or bad addresses in his list.  And there isn't jack shit I can do to keep that from happening.

The (relatively) good: at least it's not 1,500 bounces per hour like last time.  I'm not sure if that's because this one's using a cleaner list, or it's just harder to pimp as much bulk through a rotating pool of hacked home computers than it was through a real server leased through someplace shady a year or two back.

And as for the third part... just try to order some sketchy meds from http://345lkj.biz or http://475gmm.biz or http://988hgj.biz today.  No, really... try.
