Windows Messaging Spam

Twice this week every computer at the University of Connecticut had a poem 
and URL sent to it through windows messaging ("net send").  It looks like 
a very creative form of spam.  It was sent by an off-campus address in a 
cable modem range, and we have logged a complaint with the ISP.  Other 
than finally approving our windows networking block there is little we can 
do about it, except for blocking the IP address of the sender.

Anyone else get these messages?  This is the first time I have seen them 
on such a wide-scale....
