OT - mislabelled spam

Seems that the lifting of restrictions on URL suffixes is inspiring the spammers. So far I've gotten (a lot of) spam from a site using a suffix of .uk, but actually located in Texas. Today I got one with a suffix of .ar which turned out to be in Florida.
Guess we can now assume that the suffix is meaningless.

Has been for a looonnnnnggg time, Larry. I do remember when they meant something, but gaming national suffixes is nothing new. Remember when .tv came along?

True - but until recently I hadn't seen many instances of spammers using them to deliberately mask their location. Most of what I saw was for advertising or just to be "cute".
For example,the Fastmail site used a suffix of .fm. Turns out to be the legal suffix of the Federated Islands of Micronesia :-)
