IMHO the worst thing you can do is respond, as it proves to the spammer the
address is valid!

This isn't related to the recent HRO thing, but it reminded me of something

Has everyone else gotten as many of these spam messages titled
'Radio-Amateurs+ART' as I have?  It's been going on for months.  The
messages are apparenty from ON4AW, always sent from a different domain but
most recently from mariaacke at misbuscadores.com.  I've responded every time
asking for removal, and finally got a response - claiming that they've had
175,000 positive responses and that I should just ignore the message or
remove my email from the internet (hah!) if I didn't want to see it again.

The message itself is in poorly-written English and links to Dutch-language
sites with some pictures of old rigs and text on art history.  Certainly
nothing that warrants mass, unsolicited emails.  I can only assume that it's
an attempt to drive traffic to the sites, so I won't include the URLs here.

If everyone else is as fed up with this joker as I am, email them and let
them know!
