    What about 'picture' spam?

    That's your problem right there, calling it a "game" Ditto. Are you really so badly brought up you don't realise you were just extremely rude just you? In that case let me say that even though you are apparently old, you should still grow the fu** up and stop being rude to people - especially if you can't handle it comeing right back at you. Idiot.

    No, you have a problem with my stating of the facts: "I was asking the person who knew - I was hoping other people would stay out and not launch personal attacks when they didn't know." No. Its not selecting quoting, its relevant quoting, i asked "..and what newsgroup is that?" and you replied "Don't know off-hand - and if you can't be bothered looking nor can I." That's hardly helping or assisting - and where you might have chosen not to write anything. That you may have answered other things is not relevant for this question. If only, but they are hard to find...

    You attacked me and I refuse to be talked to hin that matter. And sorry, I wasn't aware that one has to comment everything - thanks Miss Betsy, and indeed thanks for being friendly and not unplesant. Last time i checked, which is admittedly several years, there were many other programs which did the same. That's because you are not honest in your evaulation of what you did, statements of facts a are fine - a condescending tone is provocative. For instance: Putting quotes around feature is arrogance on your part, you put yourself us as God and you only know what is right and everybody else in the world is wrong. Any subject can be an attack, or it can be neutral, it depends on what people say and indeed as you write below the "rhetoric" they choose. I noticed it, but I wasn't aware it was supposed to slow me down, I thought it was simply a censorship function. Well, I guess that is comming then if others persist in sniping and then pretending they have done nothing wrong. Its sweets for the sweet, but also measure for measure from me.

    Interesting - if i find the time prehaps i should check what the current state is. Are you saying there are some RFC (Request For Comments) which dictates how a mail program must store its datafiles on the endusers harddrive???? I thought they only convered the format of mail being transmitted to other computers... Which RFCs would that be?

    So first you insult people and then you put them on ignore. Very mature.

    In one has nothing else to to do but read this, I'm sure there are fascinating insights.

    For a moment there i thought you were warning me, but i see you weren't - since i quite agree with you. You expressed my worry in a way that perhaps is sufficiently subservient manner

    No i am not - as explained modern email programs decode MIME attachment since: 1. a MIME encoded file takes up alot more disk space than the decoded result. 2. MIME is a measure for transmitting info, not for storing it on endusr systems.

    What about 'picture' spam?

    So if: 1. There is only a link to the website on the picture, that link will never get parsed - and that doesn't matter to you? 2. If the body text looks totally harmless, couldn't some admin think this wasn't a spam after all I'm afraid i don't know what you mean by "spamvertized" - the sites mentioned in the spam? Takes too long - and surely it would again just be my word, how would an admin verify it. Some kind of optical character recognition. Oh, and what newsgroup is that? I thought it was fairly clear you are the problem, in that you would rather annoy people and help them - nobody forces you to help, but then at least stop harassing. Then it would behoove you to make those descriptions more clear. No, I don't want to play any kind of game - I want to be able to converse with other people without getting harassed, though i'm glad to hear you are stopping it. Fixed. Well I have no idea what he does apart from the way he has behaved towards me which is very rude and a**h*#e arrogant, so that is how i treat him back. I don't care how nice Mother Theresa was, if she kicked a kitten that kitten would still consider her a jerk. If he stops behaving that way, i wont need to slap him back. No, its a bitmap which spamcop (not the website certainly) does not parse. Spare me your condescending crap. No. Eudora (and others) strips the attachment when the text is incomming, because it would be totally stupid to store mail locally as MIME encoding, since it takes up so much more space. The MIME encoding is removed the moment the email leaves the server. SO NO, it does not look like that. Therefore what i and others get is the body text, and thent he decoded binaries are seperate on the machine. Therefore there is no way, unless you start reconstructing (and hence making a fake) email for submission. It may be what's "seen" in the email in transit, but its not seen when it arrives here. The submittal can't include this since there is no facility to include this, unless i started to reencode everything and then we are clearly into faking emails. No sensible system would store everything as the original MIME encoding since it takes up a ton of space - the real issue is that Spamcop seems to think all end users systems are stuck in the dark ages.

    What about 'picture' spam?

    How do you handle picture spam - do you report it as anything else? Btw picture spam i mean those emails where the normal body text of the mail is not advertisment, but ordinary text of some kind - could be a clip from a news story or a book, but where there is an attached picture of the add ("Buy viagra!" or whatever). Since we can't include the picture in the report, they only get the "innocent" text. Anybody know if spamcop is working on a way to store the pictures as well, so spam hunters can look up the text or something? Or does wazoo speak for them when he indicate he doesn't give a damn? Moderator Edit: as with the last "new" Topic, this one was also merged into the existing discussion.

    Because he wanted feed back from people who care about this, instead of you who only give rude arrogant condescending self pitying comments. Therefore it will be posted there AGAIN - and if you remove it again i can only assume you are helping the spammers. Either offer something constructive or shut up. If Spamcop can't find a way to handle this ever growing problem, spamcop will be of little use in the years to come.

    That is the problem, since the add is in the graphic - the text is just filler.

I really don't see the need to send a PM .....

    What's this odd spam

    I wasn't sure if i should report them or not. So i haven't, on the assumetion that perhaps it would be taken seriously (but then perhaps no reports are taken serious)
