These people should be a) prosecuted b) prevented from registering co.za domains. Nobody seems interested. Naming and shaming is having no effect.

Registering domains

I've reported spammers several times to Uniforum, but they are unwilling/unable to take action, and instead refer me to the SA Police to lay a charge. I'm sure many people wish Uniforum would take a more proactive approach to helping with the spam problem --- it would be trivial to ammend their terms and conditions to make it easy to ban known spammers.

I suppose they are afraid of lawsuits against them.

cheers, Ian

The table needs another column: current ISP ... so that we (or Anonymous!!!) can do something about it ....

Hi to all on my mail lists.
Spam is a pain and its about time we stopped supporting it. By ‘unsubscribing’ you just confirm that the mail address works.

You are being BCC’d because this company has spammed me.
I urge you not to give them any business, and to pass this message on to your mail list by BCC.
Mike
PS To be fair, if I get a response from them I will consider to circulate it.

They should do three months jail time and community service, and see how they like that
