I do but I was on vacation (in Italy!) last week.  Someone eventually
notified the overseers mailing list about this.  Someone there *should*
have been able to block the messsages from arriving.  I don't know if

sending email to either postmaster or overseers will contact the right

You can also hop on freenode and contact people on the #overseers
