Spam from


You may have received spam email recently that appears to come from our campaign, or be about our campaign — perhaps the "From" and or "Reply-to" addresses look like they are coming from Or perhaps you have received a message that appears to come from an individual (if the address is real, the real owner probably did not send this email either) with suppressed recipients. Or maybe you received an email that appeared to come from yourself promoting our site.

These messages are NOT from Nader for President 2004, and these email tactics are NOT condoned by our campaign in any way.

UPDATE: Some of the latest forged emails have been made to appear to be coming from Again, we are not responsible for this unfortunate abuse of email, and there is little in the technical sense that we can do to prevent this as it has nothing to do with our actual infrastructure. We are collecting information.

NOTE: The emails with malicious code (viruses, worms, etc.) often have attachments. Our campaign will NEVER send attachments in our announcement emails to you. Please be sure that you have anti-virus software and have the latest updates available for your anti-virus software.

Our hosting service has alerted us to say that Nader for President 2004 appears to be the target of what is called a "Joe Job." Such an event is where a spammer forges email to make it appear to have come from some other domain (such as ours — or yourself). This is hard to prevent on our end and part of the insecure nature of the email protocol in general.

Members of our actual email list must request to receive email from us (either through Ralph's signup sheets or subscribing during our exploratory phase, or now on our campaign site). When one signs up for email they must reply to a confirmation message before they receive our list announcements.

Our public announcement emails come from "," contain a "Paid for by Nader for President 2004" statement at the bottom, and have "" in the "To:" header. Unfortunately, some of these indicators can be forged as well.

Most of the Spam that we have received complaints about appear to be forged from email addresses not
associated with (often forged to appear to be coming from government email addresses), and
have our website code embedded in the body of the email with hidden tags that contain random words
that work to subvert anti-spam software.

If you are on our lists, you can ALWAYS
unsubscribe at ANY time by following the instructions included at the end of our announcements.
You can also use our unsubscribe page using the email address
you signed up with.

If you are receiving this SPAM, we extend our apologies.

We will pursue the spammers to the full extent of the law.

Please contact with any questions. We have received many samples of the spam and are working to identify the source, if possible.

on real problem.

Conspiracy theory?s real script: shotting form upper levels

I got out again and started running downstairs again, sliding down the
stair I would stop at each door to leave traces of blood there, because
actually they went inside the room that was open upstairs to find me,
their concept was I was hiding in there, they did not find me there, but
the old man in wheel chair(the patient) told them that he has already
gone. These jewish terrorists called down stairs to ensure they lock the
doors of lowest level as it was always open they did not want anyone to
see this, getting caught only meant death in jewish hands. I do remember
that these guys started shooting at me from upstairs using their
pistols, a few times shots just missed my legs and feet. These jews then
divided themselves in two groups, one that would check each level other
that was running down stairs.

They stopped at each level in an attempt to find me, they would hit and
knock the doors really hard to wait for some nurse to open the door,
each time they were told no. They did this because there was another
exist on the other side too, so may be after locking I just ran off
though other exist. All this gave me enough time to place cr
