I received a spam email that mentioned the Commons, and thought it should be looked into.

Andre,

I received an email that mentioned the Commons and forwarded it to Boone because I wasn't sure if it should be looked into. I took a look at the headers and didn't see anything related to the commons or our servers. Boone thinks it's probably just a spammer scraping the commons, but asked me to open an issue and add you as a watcher just to check it out.

I saved the email as a *.eml file in Thunderbird and attached it to this ticket when I created it. I still have the email if you'd like it forwarded to you.

Let me know if you need anymore info from me to look into this.

This has been an on and off occurrence for us over the past few years. Definitely annoying. And thanks for bringing it up, Dom. André, it would be great if you could look into this. Thanks.

Just a random garden-variety spam. NO action needed.
