ALL ABOUT SPAM

SPAM: a tasty treat often served as breakfast or even a dinner and made by the Hormel Corporation .

Spam: The scourge of the internet and email clients the world over. It can contain spam or a scam, a virus, trojan, or other malicious software or offers to steal everything from a person's ID to their first born children. A serious wast of time and effort to anyone who receives it regardless of their status or standing in a society. It exists because lazy idiots make money from it and simply press a button whereupon a computer system boils out millions of spams at a time. This author has fought spam for two decades, even before it left the government's hands and was given to the public as an informationspreading service.

What's the best way to manage spam I receive?
   It's called JHD (Just Hit Delete) to get rid of it. NEVER respond to ANY spam, nor click ANY link in a spam for any reason whatsoever.  As soon as a spammer figures out that the address is not only in existence, but someone responds to the spam, your email address increases in value and new, more expensive and accurate lists are created that draws more money than just a list of names.

OR, as I and the group of spamfighters I belong to do, fight it!

Rather than regurgitate the millions of words on the subject here I will provide the visitor with plenty of reading material and information on spam and spammers.

That's a lot of reading, probably more than anyone will ever make it through, BUT those are reliable sources and other than a few cookies won't harm your system as of this writing. You can find something similar to your own situation if you look at several of those links. Hopefully it is easily more than you need to get going on learning about spam and how to fight it if you wish. There are spam laws in some states and countries but the only sure way to stop a spammer is to either put him in jail or hit him in the pocket book. It's true that if you knock out a spammer, he will just reappear from another source but his methods and types of spams/scams will be the same. For a lot of reasons it's possible to spot these guys when they reappear or have other bases they work from. Kill a spammer once and it's no big deal; he just goes to another ISP and starts up there all over again. But force them to do this over and over and it begins to eat into profits. It costs money to keep getting more accounts and a couple weeks later having it shut down again, ad infinitum.
   Once you have them on the run, their end of life is in site: That's what I and my little group do in conjunction with anyone else who wishes to join in.
