I'm not exactly sure what I did to receive the following email:
Received: from XXXXXXX (unknown [184.108.40.206])

That's the entire message.
I don't think I've written anything recently that would warrant such a response. I don't think …
From: address has been forged—I seriously doubt I
pissed off some people associated with sperm donations (yes, I did a Google search on that
email address and got back references to a sperm bank/fertility clinic).
Return-Path: is most likely forged as well—the domain is
to an infrastructure software company and besides, the IP address listed doesn't match any in
use by said infrastructure software company. Instead, the IP address belongs to China Telecom.
Wait a second … China … hmmmm …
I wonder if it has anything to do with this spam I replied to last year …
