Hi everyone,

turns out I was wrong - someone from this company (@datanz.com) was
monitoring posts to this list and apparently sending spam out. I've
removed the address from the mailing list.

If you want to see who is responsible for this company/website, you
can go to
http://registrar.godaddy.com/whois.asp
and type in "datanz" into the entry form. (you will need to have
cookies enabled in your web browser for this to work.)

Complain to them - they sent it.
