Following the epic discovery that I was receiving spam and virus-loaded emails returned as having been sent to others from me and my websites, both alive and dormant, by the DoD, I now find that ALL my mail both in and out passes through the American Department of Defense.
Now, I don’t have anything to hide, and if I want to say that all the vermin infesting the present Administration should be in jail for their crimes, then I say so without fear or favor, and I don’t care who sees or hears it. - In fact the more the merrier.
But at the same time, I think the intrusion is a bit of a f*****g cheek. Who the hell do the American Defense Department think they are to pry into the private correspondence of any mature civilian non-criminal non-subversive and well-intentioned person?
But how about you? Are we all receiving the same treatment? If so, don’t you think we should rise up and tread on these cockroaches that have usurped all our decent freedoms?
Look at the in-tray of your email Outlook Express.
· Right-button click on an incoming email.
· Left-button click on ‘Properties’.
· Left-button click on the ‘details’ tab, and
· left-button click on ‘Origin of message’.
You will then see something like this -

I have a little program that tells me the identity and source of these numbers, so if folks send me viruses, I can advise their ISPs and they will be warned against such practices.
