Wednesday, February 04, 2009 Queen of the named spammers

The spam has been flowing in lately.  Amazing variety, amazing volumes. I'd blacklisted them a year ago, so I was a bit surprised. (See my personal blacklist of named spammers).

Turns out they'd gotten another email address of mine, probably scraped from the net, and their spam was flowing in from a new hole. I decided to submit a 'remove request' and see if they were any better behaved these days, but that just doubled the sewage.

So I've closed the new opening. Of course I'll never purchase anything through I'm disappointed that Google Checkout hasn't dropped them.

Conde Nast is the king of the named (public) spammers, but is a close second!

I hope they're not long from this world. Please avoid them.
