Yeah, I get hundreds a day and dozens more auto-responders responding
to worm mail sent out as "From: fielding@ics.uci.edu" just because
that address is in the RFCs I wrote.  A lot of the messaged without
attachments are being forwarded by UCI after their virus checker
has stripped them.

BTW, feel free to block all e-mail with that address in From -- I never
use it to send mail.
