|[TSL] ADMIN about spam links sent to lists|
|Susan Swiggum <email@example.com> on 01/25/2013|
Occasionally we see emails to the list with no subject and simply a link
in the body. Never open those links on any email list you belong to as
they are spam inadvertently sent by a list members computer. Usually
the listmaster at Rootsweb will universally unsubscribe the member from
all the lists they belong to and send them a message telling them why
they were unsubscribed, with a copy to the various list owners. If
that doesn't automatically occur, I unsubscribe them myself and send
them the quoted message pasted below.
> It is likely that your computer or your email account was hijacked by

> After you are sure your computer has been cleaned of Trojans and/or
> your email account is secure, you are welcome to subscribe again.
> Please consider using another email address to subscribe.
