Yes, I'm getting the same. I've been assuming the addresses have just been scraped from http://www.sigcis.org/members, where they're all in clear text.

Hi all - I’ve received one spam email from this person via SIGCIS, and now s/he is following up with another.

Anyone else being harassed by him/her — or possibly “it”?

Given the other recent spam, it’s looking like there is some back door to the member directory.

Best,

Paul
