FWIW the address has also been posting to the gcc lists "helpfully"
asking for spam posts to be removed (with *links* to the posts), plus
some (apparently) random-harvested paragraphs of text from various other
mailing lists, presumably to try to get past filters.

See e.g. the URL obtained by running:
 echo uggc://tpp.tah.bet/zy/tpp/2013-12/zft00097.ugzy | rot13

Hope this is constructive
