Today my 'postmaster' got mail from "spamcop.net". He was utterly confused and mailed me and asked why he got this weird mail...

It turned out that spamcop.net is a blatantly stupid complain-to-the-spammers system, which tracks down the origins of URLs in "spams" and mails the postmasters of the supposedly offending spammer sites.

Now, the "spam" in this case was a mail in which someone described his travel by train in Peru, and there he added a URL to my page with a few pictures from the city of Aguas Calientes near Machu Picchu:

So, I'm an alleged spammer because I keep a page that one person liked to much he mailed a bunch of people pointing it out.

Well, I figure someone pulled some strings to make this happen and someone can of course have made a perfectly normal human error here, but it sure ended up very strange in my side of the world..
