it seems to originate from an eircom ADSL subscriber.
Had the mail been sent directly to me, I would have
reported the abuse to eircom.
Does anyone in eircom respond to these reports?
I keep receiving and blocking incoming requests
from eircom ADSL users on TCP port 4444 (napster)
and port 6346 (gnutella).
