I think this is the right forum for this, but maybe not. (If not, I'm sure the moderators, who are on top of things, will move it.)

SpamCop tried to send a message to 'abuse[at]arcor' (no .com, .net or .anything).

Here is the Tracking URL.

Is there any way to resend the notification that arcor-ip.de should have gotten? I can't submit the spam again.

I think/fear it would have to be manual David (retrieve the spam from your past reports and compose a covering "note" to send it). You would need to be sure they're fairly white hat or use a disposable address. I guess you're concerned they're being deprived of the opportunity to do something about the abuse in a timely manner. They may be receiving more recent reports from others already - and since there were spam trap hits to tip them into the SCbl relatively quickly - and they're on a heap of other bls - I don't really think it would make much difference now. Note, from SenderBase, they have a large increase in mail and taken together with their "Poor" reputation that means the increase was almost surely all spam.

I found 2 more of these errors, should the reports be forwarded to deputies or posted in this forum?

I usually just send a note to the deputies when I find errors like that, they usually take care of them pretty quickly and the next round of reports go through where they should.

In theory, see SpamCop Newsgroups .. the spamcop.routing newsgroup specifically.

Posting the data to the Forum does bring it to light, but .... paid staff doesn't spend much time here, and certainly does not peruse each and every posting here. That's why you'll see that someone has made a note about sending it upstream.

Mailing the data directly .. that's one of those things hard to simply say yes to. There is still only the small handful of people that receive those e-mails, once described as three people trying to handle 800-1800 e-mails a day (though allegedly there have been more people hired.) If all data is presented, all research done, and correct actions recommended, probably no big deal. However, if someone else reads this and figures that simply sending in a complaint about the bad condition ... well, that probably won't be received well, possibly not acted on immediately, etc. As I stated in the Wiki description, it boils down to doing the homework first.

Yes, it's a common factor - I posted the above before I picked up what you were talking about. I will add to my thread 'over there'. Maybe Ellen will get/has got it anyway. If so, yet another "little" fix ticketed, but it would be nice to know.

Wazoo-

Read this earlier in the day, but the phone rang and real-life commanded me to be elsewhere. Came back and see that Farelf picked up the slack. The "more effective way" description is really up for grabs. As I understand it, the Deputies focus on their e-mail first, perusing newsgroup traffic as time allows. The Forum rates basically zilch, though pointing out that RW has made a post or two, Don has appeared in response to most of my queries, although sometimes finding time to make an appearance for other purposes <G>

So though it has been posted to the newsgroups as suggested, I also chose to make it a follow-up to my previous e-mail about the previous issue.

Reporting problems with abuse addresses directly to deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net via email is far and away the most effective route to a solution.

Please use a descriptive subject line:

such as: Bad Abuse Address

Please be clear and concise.

Please include a Tracking URL.

Please do NOT simply point us to a forum topic. We have some pretty good skills, but divining your intentions is not one of them. :-)

Have a note to myself that the FAQ entries, the Wiki entries, and all responses in the future need to reflect this 'new' preference in handling routing issues. The follow-on question then would be whether the spamcop.routing newsgroup needs to continue its existence ...????

Edit: OK, having to admit that I hadn't noticed that this newsgroup was actually removed from the http://www.spamcop.net/help.shtml web page, having to assume now that this was done a long time ago.

I'm thinking that you could have possibly pointed to the copy of the e-mail I submitted and provided a copy of in this very Topic, perhaps even pointing out what was wrong with that e-mail .... although I'd have to note that there has been no reply to the follow-up e-mail as shown here, in addition to several other Don/Deputies e-mails. So just as folks complain about a lack of response / action seen in the newsgroups, one might not see anything from an e-mail submittal either. It is probably best described the same way changes to the parsing code is found to be 'fixed' ... whatever was broken just starts working ...????

Looking at posts #2 and #3 in this thread...

You posted your message to Ellen, and then posted her response 35 minutes later, and now you're warning people that email submittals might be ignored.

I can't help but think that your warning is contradicted by the facts.

I specifically said "follow-up e-mail", which is seen at Linear Post #13. The commentary also mentioned several other e-mails on different subjects. I've even resent one of them (again to both you and Deputies) on the apparent premise that somehow a spamcop.net to spamcop.net e-mail was somehow lost.

Ah! My mistake.

I thought you were warning users that if they send in information by email it might be ignored.

I didn't realize that when you said, "one might not see anything from an e-mail submittal either," you were actually talking about follow-up emails and not first report emails.

I did not use any words close to ignored.

I didn't realize that when you said, "one might not see anything from an e-mail submittal either," you were actually talking about follow-up emails and not first report emails.

Interpretation involved apparently. My first e-mail dealt with the apparent bad look-up. My follow-up extended that to an apparent issue with the parser code, based on the additional samples of bad lookup returns. There is/was the assumption that the Reply would be of the 'ticket has been opened' type. Pretty much my same expectation with my write-up on the XSS / scri_pt insertion exploit.

I guess I don't understand.

If you weren't warning the folks in the forum that if they write to the Deputies, they might not get a reply, which implies that their email will be ignored, what were you warning them against?

You know . stuff happens when you start reading things with a certain mind-set already in place, then choose to only read selected words and phrases, then pull them out of context to make some off the wall point.

I repeat, I said nothing close to the word, definition, or scenario of 'ignored' ... only you have used this word. In fact, doesn't the following statement that you ignored in the same paragraph state just the opposite? It is probably best described the same way changes to the parsing code is found to be 'fixed' ... whatever was broken just starts working ...????

This Forum, the newsgroups, both contain numerous complaints, remarks, pointers about non-response to both postings and e-mails. There is nothing new in this.

On this specific Topic and data presented, I note that Dbiel made a new Wiki page, in which he states that the three examples of a hypenated Domain name have all been fixed and seems to suggest that the parser code may have been fixed. I'm not sure where that data came from, as the only response thus far seems to be Ellen's reply to my first e-mail, which appears to be a fix based on her manually manipulating the database. Nothing else stated in this Topic, no response seen in the spamcop.routing newsgroup to the same thread started on the same subject (hypenated Domain names) ..... Yet again, I am not using anything close to the word "ignored" .. only pointing out the lack of a response from those that can change things.

To answer your question directly, I was not making a warning. I was simply pointing out that the lack of a Reply may not necessarily mean that nothing was being done. However, I must note that without feedback, it is hard to tell what the status might actually be. Note the continued posting of more and more examples in this Topic. Feedback from 'above' that the programming staff were in fact working on a fix would short-circuit these additional posts.

I tried not to imply that the parser code had been fixed, but only that the 3 examples had been fixed. I also concluded from the common problem of the domain having a hyphen, that the hyphen might be the problem. But that was just a logical guess. Sorry if it reads incorrectly.

What I want to know is who sends the deputies just a link to forum topic?

I am trying to remember if I ever did. I might have since a topic like this is not easy for me to summarize since it is getting a little detailed and I think it would be obvious if they read the topic what input was needed. But, I very rarely email the deputies about anything and can't say that I was ever ignored when I did.

Yet every once in a while we get a topic started by someone who hasn't gotten a response from a deputy. Usually, it seems obvious that the reason is that they haven't given enough information so they get the old Socrates routine from Wazoo (and I don't remember ever seeing a complaint from a deputy then).

As Wazoo says, there are ways and there are ways to experience a response. If the problem gets fixed, that's a response, right?

And who sends the deputies a link to a forum topic?
