I tried to cancel this. Apparently SC does not honor cancel requests. I
realized as I was about to post to .spam that the message was NOT
addressed to me, and that it was, in fact, addressed to someone who's
domain I am administering for them on my ISP's account (long story -- I
used to work for the ISP and this is a "freebie" hosting by them... since
I was affiliated with both the ISP and the group who's domain this is, I
got tagged to be the "responsible party" <G>)
Fortunately, I made enough noise so that I won't be receiving any of their
emails any more. :-)
