    I have filters for several of those to automatically delete without going to Spam - due to the sheer volume of spam emails they send out which has made it more difficult for me to find the occasional false positive email in my Spam folder.

    Added a link to my forum signature, here's hoping Google will shame them a bit more at the top of a virtual list of spammers.
    ATTENTION: Bloody dishonourable SCAMRAL agent and clones

    Trying to bait me into replying to your troll posts is not going to work.

    This list in itself works to stop some people from spamming. But even bigger is that some spam filtering companies (software) have started to add these guys to their lists - hence a positive development.

    My personal SPAM hall of shame:
    1) Esquire: emails multiple times a day, opt-out link is not a link at all, just a picture in an email.
    2) CompuCable in Hatfield. These peoples probably have a Windows 95 machine running with Outlook 97 or something, if you look at the quality/standard of their emails. No opt-out lists, no response on emails, contains animated GIFS and all 200 recipients are CC'd (not BCC'd)!

    Everyone should actually get together on spamming the spammers clients, so if you use these companies to spam us them we spam you.

    I wish all ISP's and hosting providers started terminating the services of these spammer mf's

    Yes. People do not want to be on it (despite the lack of any tangible consequence to being listed). Some will sign undertakings and adopt better e-mailing policies.

    This resource was never intended to be used for filtering and as such is not necessarily suitable for it. For instance, domains of some not entirely spammy ESPs are listed. Only being updated every few months also makes it unsuitable for use in filtering.
