Spam Attack Notice

June 9, 2010

    (0609)Since yesterday afternoon I have been receiving large batches of e-mail "delivery failure" notices. After checking into it I have discovered that one of our e-mail accounts had been tampered with and used to send out what is called the "Puppy Spam". It is a message said to be from a Pamela Clemons claiming to be giving away puppies.

    I've made password changes and sent reports to my server administrators. So far I'm not seeing to much improvement as I am still getting these notices.

    If you received one of these Puppy e-mails. Ignore it, as far as I can tell your only getting one. And note, I am not Pamela and none of those messages were sent by me.

    I have also received replies from some of the recipiants of those SPAM mails. It is to bad that there are still people out there who actually feed into the spammers activities by responding back to them. They have then become part of the problem. Advice to all, you may research or have someone you trust do the research but " NEVER RESPOND TO A SPAMMER".

Learning the Hard Way

    According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem.

    A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.

    Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors,! she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

    He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

    There are teachers, and then there are educators.
