Dear technical expert,
if you already know, that it is easy to fake e-mail sender addresses, why do you respond automatically to e-mails that hit unknown mailboxes in your domain?
Please take 10 seconds and think about it
Thanks for the backscatter,

You recently sent an e-mail to a cinderlane.com address that does not exist. If you *responded* to an e-mail that had allegedly been sent from that address, be advised that it did NOT originate from that address, nor from the cinderlane.com domain
AT ALL! Rather, somebody simply indicated that address as being the sender. It is something that is extremely easy to do.
Cinderlane Productions does NOT spam or otherwise send to mailing lists, either unsolicited OR solicited. Cinderlane Productions does NOT issue any of its LEGITIMATE mailboxes to unknown parties.
This message is automatically sent in response to mail addressed either to an unassigned cinderlane.com address or to Mail_Control@cinderlane.com.

Due to the fact that it is being flooded by spam, this e-mail address has been eliminated. If you have a legitimate need to contact Cinderlane Productions, you may do so by addressing Correspondence2[at]cinderlane[dot]com. Replace [at] and [com] with the appropriate punctuation.
This address is to be used if you have legitimate questions about video or about a Bare Bones video tape. It is NOT to be used if you are selling something. If you want to be certain that I never ever use your services and never ever respond to your e-mail, then send me a solicitation.
