Nice of the spammers to make things easier for me...

Going through some backed-up email today, I find that 90% of the spam that slipped past Comcast's filters all purports to be from Pfizer. (All for Viagra, I think, but I'm not even bothering to preview any of it.) Many dozens of them: far as I can tell, whoever is sending it harvested *every* address of mine that ever ended up on a spam list. This is a curious advantage of having our own domain, and using the email addresses in it liberally: the spam winds up clumping in terribly obvious ways...

[ETA: oh, that's delightful. The later ones changed the From line to "Real Pfizer", presumably to convince me that they're not spammers like the hundred *previous* messages I received...]
