Spammers, Opt-In Lists, and More…
I got a kick out of this article at kuro5hin about the guy who responds to the spammer and then has the experienced linked below.
One of the opt-in mailing lists that I own sends out a joke newsletter three times weekly. It contains clear unsubscribe directions, and everyone on it has already opt-ed in to receive the emails.. however, I must receive at least 4-5 emails per thousand subscribers wondering why they’re getting email, accusing me of being a spammer, or just stating “REMOVE ME”.
Geesh, read the directions people, I made it easy, and I’m one of the good guys! I hate spam. Green eggs and ham, spam I am.
He who fights with spammers…. It started with a regular spam email. One of many I would receive that day. From: Harald Lenz To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Saturday, January 15, 2028 5:50 AM Subject: Winecellarconstruction Gruber We build classic vaulted cellars [kuro5hin.org]
