This isn’t a political post.
It’s one of those techno-nerdy posts.
You see, last night my e-mail address of almost 10 years was used by one of those spamming software resellers as the originating e-mail address for a message sent to thousands of people about OEM (original equipment manufacturer) software.
I know this, because I have more than 500 returned-message notices in my inbox this morning.
Thank heaven it wasn’t a message for internet porn, or worse.
So today I’ll have to see what kind of remedies and recourses are available to me for the hijacking of my e-mail address.
If you received one of these messages, purportedly from me, you have my regrets.
And I would caution you against purchasing OEM software – from anyone.
