Unauthorized mass email from philocrites.com.

Someone is fraudulently using "philocrites.com" email addresses in spam email campaigns. (I discovered this when hundreds of bounces started showing up in my inbox this afternoon.) Please note: I never send and will never authorize any mass mailings from this domain. I'm mortified to see my domain used this way and angry at the criminals who are doing it. Unfortunately, there's not a thing I can do to stop it.

I don't think there's much anyone can do. It looks like a very wide spam attack: The bounces came from all over the world and all kinds of email addresses, so I think random email addresses pretending to be from my domain were sent to thousands upon thousands of recipients. Very frustrating.
