Google Groups Spammed & Spoofed

Someone used a paid relay service to send a blast of spam mail to Google Groups today, including an email to DotNetDevelopment forged to look like it was from me, and one to the Twitter development list from Abraham Williams. I wonder if I can tighten up my SPF records further ...

Note:

"node67-rs.smtp.com is a paid relay service. We do not tolerate UCE of any kind. Please report it ASAP to abuse@smtp.com"

Reported! Too bad they're sloppy enough to either take on a paying scammer, or allow their server(s) to be compromised.
