[ RadSafe ] "Complaint" to RADSAFE: #1 WSJ.com - #2 Spam

I received today two suspicious e-mails from RADSAFE. 

#1 is the one below: I do not understand, why RADSAFErs should work
themselves through several links to read a message possibly related to
RADSAFE. First of all these links may lead to fake addresses with all
possible disastrous consequences, secondly if somebody wants to distribute
something on RADSAFE he or she should use plain text. Thirdly anybody who
uses a title on RADSAFE in his e-mail address ("doctorbill") is especially
suspicious for me.

The other case is an e-mail which came via RADSAFE about somebody cycling to
somewhere to support some cancer fund - of course with the request for
donations. This really is not the agenda of RADSAFE to distribute such
requests. Caveats like above apply to this message as well.

Sorry to bother you with this, but I thought it was most annoying. 

Best regards,
