re:obscene message

My guess is that the obscene message came about as a result of what is a
common prank--signing someone up for large numbers of irrelevant mailing
lists so that their e-mail is swamped.  Some "pranksters" do this for
people they don't even know, but for whom they have obtained an e-mail
address and password.

The victim then has to unsubscribe from all the lists, but usually doesn't
know how.  With as many as 50 posts a day, iris-l could be one of the most
irritating lists to get on--if you don't like irises.
