I have, on occasion gotten rebuttals or responses to my reports. Typically it's something along the lines of "sorry for the inconvenience we've solved the problem" or that they had a virus infected system. I appreciate the response from an admin when that happens and I usually will reply. But that also, by way of mail client, gives them my actual email address which is usually not a problem.
However today I got a response from a spammer that is essentially trying to bully someone who may be uncertain or and trying to cover their tracks and keep themselves from getting blacklisted.
Either way, when he replies, it goes to an obfusicated email, but if I reply it will go back to him directly. If I reply to the SC address it just comes to me. Craigslist does have this kind of option that it essentially relays back and forth using the same random address for the interested parties. Either that or some way to make notes of things like this against the original complaint... something for others to be aware of. I'm just concerned this may turn into a normal thing and reduce SC's relevance.
Below is a portion of the message source with specific information removed (but I left the spammers info in... screw him LOL) and the relevant text highlighted for readability. Of course I've never bought from them, nor would I. It's a clear attempt to make someone insecure about using SC and intimidation.
