    come on, give people some credit. you’re such a downer. and why does a person need to phish emails to send mass spam, when there are all those sketchy addresses i find in my gmail spambox? (i can’t provide an example right now because i just deleted all my spam.)

    Generally speaking the username and passwords that spammers have gotten from phishes recently have been used to use Wesleyan’s email servers to… send out spam.And I’d imagine some people fell for this one too.

    hahahahaha. the spammer doesn’t know how to phish, how to speak english, or even who the fuck he wants to spam. i mean seriously… how did this retard type in WESLEYAN.edu and not realize wellesley.edu is different? i wonder what he would do with the information (if admissions – for either school – failed so completely as to accept someone naive enough to fall for this). maybe he wants to identity-steal himself a college education. hmmm.
