    Hi, my name is Alex Goldman and I'm a radio producer based in New York City. I host and produce a podcast about the internet called Reply All. We are interested in doing a story about email spammers, and as part of the story, I wanted to get in touch with someone who sends email spam. Specifically someone who spoofs email addresses in order to trick their intended recipients into opening it. I don't know if this is the right forum to look for this, but I'm having a hell of a time finding someone who is willing to talk to me about this.

    I can guarantee your anonymity if you are willing to talk to me. I can't post contact info here but I will post it in my twitter feed. My twitter handle is agoldmund. Thanks for your time, and sorry to bother you if I'm barking up the wrong tree.

    Yours,
    Alex Goldman
    Host/Producer, Reply All podcast

    only a noob would ask that. in other news heres a recipe for a cookie

    * 250g plain flour
    * 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 170g unsalted butter, melted
    * 200g dark brown soft sugar

    * 100g caster sugar
    * 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    * 1 egg
    * 1 egg yolk
    * 325g chocolate chips

    Method
    Prep:10min › Cook:15min › Ready in:25min

    1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas mark 3. Grease baking trays or line with parchment.
    2. Sift together the flour, bicarb and salt; set aside.
    3. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking trays, with each cookie around 4 tablespoons of dough (for smaller cookies, drop 1 rounded tablespoonful and adjust baking time as necessary). Do not flatten the dough. Cookies should be about 8cm apart.
    4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking trays for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

    Spoof email. Sorry, that's not spamming rather it is an illegal practise that neither BHW permits discussion about nor anyone here performs it.

    If you really need to interview someone then you need to clear on whether you want to interview an hacker or a spammer.
