I am anal about keeping my home email address private. I never sign up for mailing lists. Hell, I don’t even give my address out to relatives as some always seem to think its “nice” to send you an E-card or whatever they think is neat on the net and has a “send to a friend” option.
Nevertheless, I always seemed to somehow get my share of spam. It used to ALWAYS be from either:
Recently, there have reportedly been crackdowns on Spam from the above companies and email services. I would guess that it has been 6 months since I have received a single spam from any of them.
Every. Single. Piece. Of. Spam. I receive is from a yahoo.com address. EVERY SINGLE ONE WITHOUT EXCEPTION. Unfortunately, that is about 6 per day. Compared to other spam sufferers I am sure thats “low” but it annoys the fuck outta me. I get everything from “Make you cock huge” to “The Best Anti-Virus Software” to “Stop Spam” :rolleyes:
For fucks sake. Why can’t you idjits be 1/2 as good as your “competition?” Excite and MS has been extremely successful in my opinion on combating spam. I even went so far as to alert them to my plea a few weeks ago in a nice, kindly written out email. No reply. Not even an automated scripted response. I guess they couldn’t give a shit.
Yahoo - Take a lesson from them. Find out what software and methods they are using and apply them! You’re fucking annoying and probably the biggest single spam provider on the net!
