Yes, everyone in my contacts list is receiving weird emails.
I will try to rectify the situation tonight, when I have access to what I might need to do so. In the meantime, I haven't seen any evidence of the evil emails for about eleven hours, so I'm hoping . . .
Way too much of my life, including this blog, is connected to that email account, and google has got itself so tangled up in knots that I can't just change the email associated with the blog.
So . . . practice good online stewardship and don't open anything that makes no sense!
