Ah, that’s what all those German Spam messages sent to my secondary mail accounts were about. I only know the commonly known German words, like verboten and Volkswagen, so I had no idea what they were about. And one of the secondary mail addresses has no connection to either of my blogs, so I don’t think it is just bloggers, tough bloggers might be the prime target. At least one of the German spam messages had a spoofed sender address of Liberty.edu, which is Jerry Falwell’s little fundimentalist university in Virginia, which I found very very interesting.
