And today I get an e-mail from \ <> informing me my account is temporally suspended and thanking me for my "anticipated co-operation".  I guess it does work with some people.  Just wondering if WxC would consider a service where you forward this kind of account phishing spam to them to get it blocked?  That would help with keeping their user's account safer.
