Someone is doing something bad with my email address

The screenshot below shows some of the thousands of emails I received today, as someone has set my email address as the return address of a spam blast.  This happened a couple of weeks ago as well, but it stopped so I had hoped it was a one-time deal.

You sometimes forget there are assholes out there who wish to do you harm.  If I learn anything from this or if there are any interesting developments I’ll let you know.

A long time developer, I was an early adopter of Linux in the mid-90's for a few years until I entered corporate environments and worked with Microsoft technologies like ASP, then .NET. In 2008 I released Sueetie, an Online Community Platform built in .NET. In late 2012 I returned to my Linux roots and locked in on Java development. Much of my work is available on GitHub.
