Dunno what it means... It looks like mail spoofing to me...

Yeah, its definitely spoofing

The thing that bothers me is that its supposedly coming from my TR email address. The display name is AV as opposed to my regular email display address.

The reason for the problem is the same as yours:
4.3.2 - Not accepting messages at this time 554-'imta20.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net comcast 216.239.127.234 Comcast Blocked for spam. Please see http://help.comcast.net/content/faq/BL000000'

I clicked on the link and its just a FAQ from Comcast.

Looks like Comcast was compromised, but why the TR spam?

Possible they want us all to spam people.
They, also, could be resposible for the increasing amount of spam posts i've seen in the past few weeks...

Might be a coincidence, but after I reported the recent barmen as a spammer, I started spamming.

Worms have turned and are now directing all their attention at you after reporting them as Spam?

Not something that I noticed but then again over the last few weeks I've been very busy and only reported a couple of Suspect posts on TR.

Though I've been getting them on 4 of the 5 TR Accounts that I maintain. 3 of them get very little if any posts made on them but I am getting that junk on them as well.

I didn't click on any links in the email, if there were any, except for the report as spam link. Next thing you know, I'm spamming ithaki2 at comcast.net. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.
