Some stupid moron thought that sending spam would be an effective method Christian marketing. The moron posted these email addresses for consultation:
The website www.transmundial.org is hosted at GospelCom.net. I think it is a shame that someone as reputable as GospelCom has to be associate with this scum.
Here are the full headers for your entertainment…

I have a friend who used to work for Gospelcom. I sent him a link to this post. He has forwarded it to the powers that be at Gospelcom. He reassured me that they are very anti-spam and would not allow it if they were aware of it. I suspect it is about to end soon. 🙂
jtr is correct, we don’t approve of unsolicited emails and we have very strict policies against it. please forward any mail like this to email@example.com and we’ll handle it. we apologize for the problem.
jtr: Thanks! Wow! First order of business was forward this piece of horse manure to abuse at gospelcom. (Hey, jtr, you *do* have some contacts!)
Gospelcom Abuse: Thank you for your cooperation. I really appreciate it and look forward not only to use your services but to endorse you. Thanks!
But especially, I am grateful to the Lord for having people who really are going to stand against the scourge of spam. It is sad, and doubly sad when someone who is a Christian is the one doing it.
A hearty amen to all on this. I can’t count the times I’ve been embarrassed by mindless zeal like that. Jesus did not endorse presenting the Gospel by breaking down doors, or wrapping messages around stones to be tossed through windows.
