This is the mail archive of the
mailing list for the Cygwin project.
Re: Someone is pretending to be some Cygwin's support
As an aside, I've wondered for some time why this group is a mailing
list and not a vBulitin type forum. Would not such spam be easier to
control with forum admin tools? At least a user needs to sign up
(possibly with some form of CAPTCHA) and the account needs to be
approved and activated. At least such spam wouldn't automatically end up
in mailboxes and I believe that it is harder to implement fishing though
Just some thoughts...

This is happening on a few debian lists as well, Google will show you.
It is unconcluive if he's even subscribed to all these lists, some list
admins swear that he is not, so he may actually pull them from someplace
else. As far as I've been able to track it down, the mails come from a
test installation of a "User Help Desk" at http://portal.joegiglio.org
created by a guy named Joe Giglio which apparently works as a QA for the
company that makes the software (Assistly from desk.com). The company
does not have any email address on their website and the one from the
whois entry from the portal site is apparently ignored. I've deleted
the mails I've received so far, but I'll surely get another one in
response to this post, so where do I send the headers then?
