It's a campaign by Adbusters, the people who are supposed to be
anti-mass marketing and should know why spam is such a bad thing. It's
an egregious campaign that is getting everywhere.
Please drop them an email and point out why it's not only annoying (as
any spam is) but it's an especially clueless sort of spam that
discredits their whole position.

I suspect that rather than being done by Adbusters as such is a couple
of dickheads doing it off their own back.
Or even, for conspiracy theory fans-being done by the targets of the

nope, it's real.

stuff out before your newsreader gets it with a fairly powerful rule-based
config (newsreader pointed at loopback interface, proxy pointed at the news

In the past, you might well have received email bounces for spam
mail you never sent. This is exactly the same, except the sender

so the newsgroup is getting the bounces, etc. It was most likely a
random selection from a list of harvested mail addresses.
