Phase.org has been Joe-jobbed. Arse.

UPD: looks like the spam in question contained forged Habeas headers, so I've sent a copy of a bounce to them.

Thank you for your email to Habeas!

Habeas has recently come under attack from an as yet unidentified

been extremely helpful in our investigation.

With respect to Support requests:

We are currently experiencing a backlog and will review your request in

With respect to spam containing our headers:

Please know that at Habeas we take the use of our trademark in spam very
seriously, and that while we cannot report back to you directly and
