I've seen a lot of SPAM from "New Heights 1268 / Jaco Derksen". They once signed up with us and tried to send SPAM off, I suspended them very quickly. I contacted their new host about the issue, but they didn't seem to care. The main thing here is that a lot of hosting companies do not care about their IP addresses getting blacklisted etc. Most companies do not look into abuse emails properly or have the technical knowledge to look through mail logs and find the source of spam that people complain about :/
How do we get hold of the guys selling the lists. I want to test the ECT act and have them remove my email address. I will then lay a charge at the police station against the next one who sells my contact information again.
I totally agree with this list. But I wonder how they determine who gets placed on the list. I mean some of those emails I receive, like Secrets2Success and I find it very helpful. There is an unsubscribe option on there, so how does Secrets2Success get on this list? Is it based on a number of complaints from people receiving the email? I mean do any of those people actually even realise they can complain to the ISPA? Sometimes I wonder about the legitimacy of this list. ISPA have not been forthcoming with their criteria for getting 'blacklisted'.
Having said that I DO NOT condone spamming, but I also don't condone banning for no specified legal reason. What do you all think?
