[d@DCC] SPAM supportive of the Conservative party making the rounds...

  I am the Webmanager and list manager for digital-copyright.ca.  We have
received many copies to that domain and many others of what looks like a
SPAM with a highly political message suggesting Canadians vote for the
Conservatives on Monday.

  I recommend people save copies of these, in case Elections Canada or
someone else (the media?) decides to launch an investigation of this SPAM.

  When CIPPIC asked the Conservatives what their views were on how to deal
with the SPAM problem, they provided no answer:  
  http://www.cippic.ca/election2004

  While I am not suggesting the party officially endorsed this SPAM, I do
wonder whether this is the answer from some strong party supporter to that
question.


  All I know for certain is that this specific copy of the message came
from the IP address of 217.154.75.144 .  I have received many other copies
that come from different IP addresses in several other countries.  One
possibility is that this is being distributed via machines infected by
some virus/trojan used by other SPAM distributors.

  The WHOIS database says that this message came from an IP address in the
UK:
http://www.ripe.net/perl/whois?form_type=simple&full_query_string=&searchtext=217.154.75.144&do_search=Search

  The SMTP HELO message said "digitalcanvas.ca", but that doesn't mean
much of anything as it could have been forged.  The references to
@bewdy-newk.com, @excite.com, and @hotmail.com could all have been forged.
