I have found myself on a strange mailing list.

On 2004-10-30, I received an email from announcing a meeting:

From: <>
Date: Wed, 1 Dec 2004 01:33:07 EST
Subject: Wednesday Night

Ohr Naava
Wednesday night schedule:

7:00 - Karate - Haya!

8:00 - Parsha and Halacha  -
Rabbi Freiman

9:15 - Part I of Chanuka Series "I Refuse To Give In" 
Rabbi Wallerstein

See you there!

On 2004-12-03, I received a second email from announcing another meeting:

From: <>
Date: Thu, 2 Dec 2004 00:28:40 EST
Subject: Thursday Night!

Thursday night:
7:00 PM - Come and join Yochani's awesome art class - explore
and develop your talents!

8:00 PM - Come and learn how to braid challah!
All challah's made go to Tomchei Shabbos - an organization that
helps needy families.
Plus, special guest, Mrs. Chanie Mandel, will be there to teach
us how to make a new surprise recipe!
(Due to tha large number of challahs needed and the limited oven
space, we will start making challahs as early as possible - so
if you have time, come and join us!)

Don't forget about those toys for the Toy Drive!  Ask your family
and friends to help out too - the more presents and toys we get,
the more smiles we can put on children's faces.

Tizku L'Mitzvos!  Looking forward to seeing you there! 

On this second occurance, I realized I had been placed on a mailing list, probably in error. So, I replied to the email:

This in response to the second email that I received from you
regarding a meeting.

Who are you?


I received a puzzled response in short order:

What meeting?
Who are you? 

The name given appears to match the email address.

I had intentions to immediately reply, but time got the better of me and I did not. Over the course of the next two weeks, I received eight more announcements. For brevity I will omit them here, except to list the subjects:

2004-12-03 SABABA - ride gemach
2004-12-08 Chessed Opportunity
2004-12-11 REMINDER
2004-12-11 REMINDER
2004-12-13 Monday Night!
2004-12-13 Monday Night!
2004-12-14 ?

In the last email was written another email address, I have written to it asking for an explanation. Updates on this matter will be posted here.

This is, updated 2004-12-15 02:00 EST
