I've been Zorped!

Zorpia is a spam "social network" which is good at scavenging email lists.

More details if you like. I'm mostly interested in whether anyone who's reading this has also gotten mysterious messages from zorpia.

Oh yeah. I got something purporting to be from a fellow I know on a linguistics list. I didn't click on the link, but instead emailed him asking if it really was from him. No, it wasn't; he'd gotten one too and, somewhat less suspicious or careful than I, had clicked.
