I did and it was or had to do with a canadian pharmacy wanting to sell me
Viagra which I definitely don't need.

The message may be spam although this is uncertain. I certainly didn't
click on the link in the message. But the message is ostensibly from
Sherron Smith, President of the Clalom County chapter of the NFB of
Washington and since it is -- or looks like -- a legitimate address of a
list subscriber, there's no way the list software would filter it out.
Ordinarily, when we see posts like this, the "from" address is "spoofed" by
another computer masquerading as Sherron or whomever is having his/her
address spoofed. However, in this case, looking at the Internet headers, I
get mixed results. Looks sorta like the email was sent from somewhere in
Europe causing Yahoo to relay it using Sherron's address. Then again, the
post was also addressed to me personally along with a few others, some of
whom I know. So Sherron's machine may have a bot on it.
Best thing we can do is to just wait, relax and see if any more posts whose
nature we can't fathom come from her. In any event, that's something for
Daiv Andrews and I as list moderator to handle.
