I get spam all the damn time!!! TEKLOM(sp)FTLose...
BTW: Does anyone use a good spam filter program?
Yup - all sorts of legal and "free speech" loopholes that the spammers are trying to exploit every time they get confronted. I personally don't think they will manage to make those stand up in court but we have yet to test this in ZA.and would you believe that one of SA's biggest alleged spammers is trying to press criminal charges against an isp because the isp is blocking its mail and interfering with its rights to carry on business
It is all good and well to shout "Down with the people spamming us" but how many spam messages do you get that you can trace back to some real company?
Not a lot.
How many spam messages do you get offering increased sized body parts, gift certificates, medicine, jokes, old friends looking for you, etc, etc, etc that come from bot networks that try to infect or defraud you?
Not much can be done against bot networks on the ISP side. There is no single domain to block, no single message type to filter. It is too distributed.
Like w1z4rd said, people should know what their pc is doing on the internet...
