This is too easy.....
IP 22.214.171.124 detected as subscribing one of my email addresses to a mailing list without permission.
Reduce it down to 83.149.75... do a Google search.. and what do we find? Connections with malware.... "malwarewipe.com"????

"83.149.75." is a blocked IP.
What's cool is that I have only scratched the surface so far..... I have a mild interest in what's going on ... along the lines of "let's check this out just in case there's something newsworthy" but let's be honest... who gives two hoots about being subscribed to mailing lists... so many people have tried the "let's subscribe somebody we don't like to lots and lots of mailing lists" trick that it's a boring topic.
Let's see what happens over the next few days. Who knows, *they* may do something else mildly interesting, or something really dumb that we can giggle at, otherwise, I won't bore you with the details.
