Many years ago, long before the Soviet Union collapsed, someone sent out an
April Fools Day message purporting to be from someone in the Kremlin. I
don't remember the address, which was in the bang-bang style of the day, but
I remember it had a segment like ...moscvax!kremvax!ivanov.

Apparently it's pretty easy to send messages with phony addresses. ...RM
