I woke up to a very full mailbox because someone had used my address as the return on a mass spam to many, many Australians. I'm still getting bounces. I learned from this two things:
  1. Wow, people can be such jerks at times.

  2. The spam I get advertising wonderful jobs in faraway Australia is exactly mirrored by spam sent to Australians advertising wonderful jobs in the U.S.

Whenever this happens to me my mailbox usually just fills up with bounces and only The Odd Angry Aus.
