The heights of idiocy

Dan Sugalski:

Right now I’m looking at a wad of virus-generated mail bounced back to me because it failed an SPF check at the receiver’s end.

Yep, that’s right. Someone configured their mail server to check and see if inbound mail had a forged From address and, if it found that it was, bounce it back. Back to the forged from. You know, the one you just checked and found that it didn’t come from.

Some days people truly puzzle me.
