                     SPAM EMAIL ATTACK

  Earlier this week, some of us at the Math Forum started to
  receive bounced mail messages indicative of a systematic
  attack.

  We regret this wave of spam forged by third parties to look
  like it came from us.

  To find out how you can help off-set this kind of abuse of
  our shared network resources, please visit:
