Massive denial of service attacks hit US mail

Parties affiliated with certain radical blogs have reported huge denial of service attacks, using the US Postal Service to deliver large volumes of obscure post cards to unsuspecting victims.  Believed to originate in Upstate New York, the attacks have been going on for some time now, with no end in site. Here are some examples: the clear terrorist meaning is certainly, um, clear.


  1. WOW! When sending these individually, they don't seem quite as bizarre as when they are assembled in a collage. This postcard person appears to need some sort of guidance, n'est pas? Do you think this person could have been involved in a smiley face incident in the vicinity of Grand River in East Lansing in the early 70's (previously known as the UNI-SMILEY-FACER). Seems that individual as eluded authorities to this day.

  2. I feel the less said about the smile face incident, the better, especially at this lapse of time and with the unlikelihood of apprehending all the participants, some of whom have gone into hiding, others into convents.
