Just a heads-up: somebody is sending out fake emails that claim to be from
me, and that have me endorsing the Java client for [email protected]
The reason I know somebody is faking emails is that I got a bounce from
one of them.
If somebody on the kernel list gets a message that claims to be from
"Linus Torvalds <[email protected]>" with a subject line of
"[email protected] user interface", it is fake.
I'd like to see the full headers from such a message, to see if it shows
where it is really originating from: the bounced message does not contain
the original headers..
I assume it is a mass-posting trying to market [email protected] or the particular
client in question, and I'm not all that amused.
PS. Although I have to admit that the first line brought a grin: "Being
the awesome Linux stud that I am.."
