Courteous Spammer

My email client, Apple's has been doing a truly excellent job of filtering spam lately. Several hundred emails a day get screened from my inbox. Today, I was looking for an email that I had just deleted and I ended up accidentally clicking on a spam message as I was digging through the e-garbage. What I saw amazed me! Courteous Spammer

This guy actually told me where he found my email address!! From a free Git repository,, where I'm keeping the source code for one of my many personal projects, Applet Bots.

I just had to share this bizarre experience.
