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.

For example,the Fastmail site used a suffix of .fm. Turns out to be the
legal suffix of the Federated Islands of Micronesia :-)
