No it is not an approved use. It was, in fact, a SPAM attack (so far
only one..knock on wood). Hal Miller is working on getting a SPAM
filter in place and will begin collecting addresses we want to kill.

I am taking up the issue with the company that did this unsolicited
attack. Yes, I do consider this an attack. They used resources, CPUs,
Disk Space, and bandwidth that have very restrictive use policies.

Cheers,
Leeland
