American Museum of Natural History, Upper West Side, Manhattan.

This story was published on the NYT's Web site a week ago but didn't make the print version until today: Roommate Service Clients Report E-Mail Barrage of Holocaust Revisionism. I wrote up some background info on it last week.

After the story ran on the Web, Mr. Santomauro sent it and my e-mail address to many of his revisionist friends. Soon I was getting spam from people who run a Web site with actual swastikas on it. I discovered that Nazis don't even pretend to offer you a way to unsubscribe from their mailing list. Resistance is useless!

I also received some hate mail that prompted a little research:
-- spam.abuse.net FAQ: Isn't spam protected by national free speech laws?
-- Mark Roberts: Spam Threatens Free Speech
