Faking the From Address (was: shakira photo gallery, etc.)

If you're reading this message, Hank, then the answer to your question appears to be that spoofing the from email address of a valid subscriber is enough to get a message through to the list.  I'm actually sending this message via a little script on a server that's unrelated to my absono.us email address.

It's not too surprising, really -- given the still relatively low level of adoption for email authentication, Meetup doesn't have too many other options.

Sincerely,
Not Really Whit
