  • RSS 2.0

    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

We’re Being Joe-Jobbed Again…

Filed under: General — Charlie Summers @ 8:25 am

Ok, it probably isn’t technically a Joe-job (although it’s possible some spammer I got bounced is behind it), but more likely a result of “backscatter” - either way, I’m getting a whole boatload of “bounce” messages telling me a message the OTR Digest is sending is spam. Of course, the messages are really coming from somewhere else (Russia, in one example I spent some time looking at), and have nothing to do with Old-Time Radio (drug scams, again based on that example) and are clearly forgeries (the Digest send address is being forged into the From: header field and envelope sender), but I still have to suffer with receiving the hundreds and hundreds of bounces. This will likely have the side-effect of some systems rejecting on the Digest send address, so some legitimate issues of the Digest may not make it through (it looks like is already bouncing the Digest).

(*sigh*) Happy 4th.
