Filip Poutintsev: Apparently no longer an issue

Filip Poutintsev keeps sending me private email asking me to remove all mentions of him from this blog.

That’s not going to happen, as it would be revisionist history, but I’ll say it that his ROKSO entry appears to have been dropped in early April after he had lain low for half a year. I also have no other evidence connecting him to any recent spamming. To my knowledge, he is out of the spam business.

Oh, and Filip is not Sheikh Ahmed. That’s Abdul Sattar, a real Pakistani. The two did collaborate way back when, but it eventually transpired that two distinct individuals were clearly involved.
