Better to laugh than to cry!

And if I had the time and know how, I would put all my efforts into shutting them down!

And who, pray tell, is providing this service?

dhanna will say, if dhanna wants but there has to be a heap of these "services" out there - for people who see email marketing as a legitimate tool of free enterprise ... and the others. If you really want to get your BP up, have a look at:

http://www.cheapbphosting.com

Be aware - they issued me no cookie requests but I have no idea if they log visitors elsewise. Thought I'd better add that! I blundered in there once, in innocence, and am still recovering, I felt like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

cheapbphosting.com is *not* to be confused with cheaphosting.com.

What happened then? (not curious at all ;) )

Sorry, yeah it looks a bit melodramatic, doesn't it? No mystery, no known harm, I just don't like them but mention them for the possible interest of those made of sterner stuff than I.

Well, it was blocked by SC already... And here is why...

You can block 81.57.134.91 if you want. What I thought was so funny was their email subject and content, then the fact that SC blocked it as well.
