Non stop spamming !





Antoine_935
Sad Did you subscribe to the boomtown's newsletter ?
I did it two years ago. Now, I receive the boomtown's newsletter every week.

I've already tried to unsubscribe, do it do not work.
Better : I've sent a mail to the webmaster of Boomtown to discard my email adress from the list, but he didn't do this.

So, Im looking for a way to protest again this non stop spamming.
Does anyone know a website or and organisation where I can protest against them ?

This is why I chose not to subscribe to any newsletter. My inbox may not be all that busy, but I prefer having only a couple messages to look through every day or so then to have to logon every day and get rid of all the spam.

To answer your question, maybe this would be of help?

The fact is, nobody likes spam, and a lot has been done and a lot is being done to fight spam. Major spammers are being taken to court and sued, Spam filtering technology has been introduced on the mail-service side, and alot of webhosts nowadays have measures in place to prevent their users from spamming practices.

Most free email providers generally have pretty good Junk Mail filters... this is probably an obvios suggestion, but I'm just posting to make sure you've got the basics covered... you have activated your Junk Mail/Bulk Mail folder haven't you? Very Happy

i dont know if this is of interest to you, but you could try taking a look at:

I use dodgeit.com a lot. It isn't password protected and is ment for spam mail. I couldn't careless who reads it because they can't send or delete anything that goes to my account. Also, you don't even have to register.

Do you know how to weaponize gmail? Turn every unwanted email into a torrent of mail for the offending domain. If weaponizing doesn't appeal to you learn to use deletion filters.

I agree, just try and redirect/delete all mails from said newsletter

I have two Hotmail addresses, both of them have been reduced to a torrent of spam.

For those I selected all emails, picked out ones that weren't spam, and blocked every address... unfortunately I hit the limit for blocked addresses quickly, and now I don't even know if those are still being blocked, so I have ditched those accounts.

I have a Spymac.com email address and a Gmail address (and my Frihost hosting address but I don't use that) for *real* emails.

I get tons of spam, but I really don't care I never ever see any of it because it goes straight to my spam folder in gmail.

Spam 'em back!
It may not help, but it'll make you feel better.

Antoine_935, Using your simple e-mail control panel you can block them from sending you emails.

Yahoo offers an intereting featrue, they allow you to register a free mailaccount and then add "alias" to that mailaccount. Say you register john@yahoo.com. You then add an alias, say news_john@yahoo.com. The mails for the alias will be delivered to the regular account, but the alias can be deleted at any time ( ie when the alias is creating to much spam)

Thanks to all for your advices Wink
I've activated spam-blocker, but I hate these people, and maybe I'll create some website to protest agaisnt spam.
I think sourceforge could help me.
wait and see Wink
