Because you have to many wrong attemps on your Paypal login,
we had to put your account on hold.

Years ago, when it was still possible to save the public email system, the ACLU carried water for the Direct Marketing (scumbag) Association, convincing Zoe "Clueless" Lofgren (D-CA) that spamming is free speech, not theft of service and illegal conversion of assets. The headers show ACLU runs Microsoft Exchange Server. Of course it got hacked and the criminal is sending phish spam exercising his first amendment rights with it. I wonder if anybody told them yet.
