Just a data point to let you know that I also got the flood of Out Of
Office messages and I did NOT post a message to the site. It might
have been a response to an email I sent via the list - I dunno. Just
a data point.
I posted to one of the "We are revamping our home page..." discussion posts and started getting these Out of Office messages. I'm working with Matt to try to solve too. Very annoying! I have a feeling there was some virus in the code that was posted that is now scraping all user email addresses from IXDA and sending everyone spam messages.
Just a guess.
