In the past several hours, thousand of people have been offered teenage pornography in an unsolicited e-mail message bearing my personal e-mail address. The message was not actually sent by me, of course, but by evil spammers who stole my identity for the purpose. How do I know? I'm getting hundreds of bounce messages for dead e-mail addresses on the spammers' lists. Why are they doing this? Because they can. E-mail is broken.
Now my address probably made it into several thousand blacklists worldwide. I await redemption by technology.
