It's your contribution to the anti spam community Jamie.  Each month GCI
picks a different "volunteer" to monitor spam for false positives and
directs it to their account. This month you're it! ;-)

Actually, you were probably blind-cc: and the headers aren't showing the
envelope To: field, thus you don't seem to appear in them.  GCI's MTA saw
