I got an identical one except that it named my list instead of Ken's.  Same
subscriber, too: nova @
 tetranet .
 net .
   Same phony empty From: header.

When it came, I wrote to www @
 serv2 .
 fwi .
 com (the address in Return-Path: and
in From_) demanding that the link be removed and to nova @
 tetranet .
 net ex-
plaining why I could not honor that request and how to join the list if he
or she wants to.

That was Tuesday; neither has replied.  Color me unsurprised.
