BellSouth is now spamming

Sorry to whine, but I just had to.

I just recieved an email from an invalid email address telling me that my local phone book is now online.  The email comes with an invalid return address.  I'm glad to see that BellSouth has stooped to the level of hiring someone else to spam for them.  I never signed up for this service.  Its also good to note that this email does not even meet the requirements of CANSPAM.  I'm glad to see that a major corporation, such as BellSouth, can stoop this low.

If you have had this happen to you, you might want to note that the return path in the email header is and the recieved from header shows the sending server as  When I got to their site, they list the BellSouth phone directory as one of their customers. 

BellSouth, you don't look so good for this.
