Actually, I wasn't pointing this out so much for my own benefit: it's
*way* too late for that (posting to USENET without bothering to mask
your e-mail address will do that: especially posting to asian
newsgroups will do that...).

Actually, now that I think about it chances are this particular
spammer was not smart enough to remove the "maps" after all in
sending: just lifted it "as-is" for the sender. But I have gotten mail
where the To header was both micah@comapsan.name and micah@cowan.name,
etc. from other sources, so I think they're doing it... although the
points you made could certainly cast some doubt on it: but I do
believe that they've started to get wise to the guards at any rate...
