Its name probably isn't "Andy Curran", either.  Unfortunately, there's
not a whole lot I can do: Internet email "from" addresses are not
authenticated, and that's the only mechanism Mailman (our mailing-list
software) has for filtering out randos.

As a general rule, if you see an email that claims to be from
somebody you know, but doesn't look like somethey they would say, it's
probably a forgery.
