  1. I do have the 3rd party report option, that's why I have been contemplating copying my own ISP at that point. I just wasn't sure if that was a bad idea or not; or even, if it was a violation of some policy. I guess I may just give it a try. As long as it's not breaking a rule, what can it hurt?!
  2. This last 2 weeks has been spam hell for me. Literally at least 30 spams a day (and I'm just a guy with an email address, I'm not a business). I can barely keep up with sending in the reports before more come in. Obviously my cut-rate ISP has turned off their filter or something. And I'm not just talking about spam that tries to sell you something you don't want, I mean the type that wants you to click a link and enter a credit card. Anyway, I was thinking that when I send the spam reports to the spammer's ISPs (chinanet, ru, and other criminal providers who seemingly don't lift a finger to stop the activity), could I also copy my own ISP -- to give them a taste of exactly how badly they're doing in letting all this crap seep through to their customers? My thinking is that they might then bestir themselves to use the Spamcop list. But I wanted your opinion on whether this would be a huge no-no. I don't want to harm Spamcop in any way. So please let me know if this would be ok for me to do. Thanks.
  3. Still getting constant stuff from Limestone. Given that "abuse@limestonenetworks.com" is not valid, shouldn't there at least be some sort of "devnull" address to send the report to? (If I understand correctly, the devnull reports do get analyzed somewhere, right?) It seems pretty pointless that, several times an hour, I go through the ritual of clicking "send reports" on my Spamcop analyses, if it does nothing except make a clicking sound at my keyboard! Can any guru suggest an address where these reports can be sent, which actually GOES somewhere? I mean, even if usually we are ignored, it would be something if at least someone somewhere has to make the choice to ignore!
  4. Well, the Limestone guys have been driving me crazy for months now. Spams coming in constantly. Almost none of my spam is from anywhere else! All of them reference Cloudflare -- who also don't care. I sure wish I had the same luck as Wrong Planet, but mine haven't stopped. Any suggestions what else I can do other than keep reporting? It's taking almost all my time just to report and click all these pieces of garbage all day long. This is just a sample from this morning: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6384857765z77acfcfd29fb37f2763a5864ffe9ec1bz http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6384857767zfe1c172bb82eb1b5b021a0651a3c95a8z http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6384857768z305c5d4c356986286c342a0a84c61460z http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6384857770za80fd5789d463458b911b00015a0cf66z http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6384857771z63bfe550fc9cd021e3aca286ca16d11az http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6384857774zdea075a4396e4e6fa76eb0f88857ed95z http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6384857775z347bbeed43947b6177b7a87cab6664d9z
  5. I note that Cloudflare has been a spam haven problem for years now. But just like Hank, I am very very tired of them. In the last 2 months almost all my spam (like, 20 a day) has come from Limestone Networks, and referenced stuff at Cloudflare. And weirdly, at least half of the clickbait subject lines are "Hitler's last words". Gee. Little did I know that they had Youtube back when Hitler died. And I sure don't know why anyone at all would be interested in what it go-pro'd on him. But apparently someobody thinks that this line will be the one that causes people to give away their identities to some internet criminal.
  6. Sometimes the spam comes in and the subject line contains my own email address. (eg, "Morg2, get rich quick"). If I click "send reports" from the spamcop report, the report of course shows the spam's subject line. And if that subject line has my name, everyone involved in the handling of this report will see it. I tried to simply highlight and delete, but that isn't available from the "send report" web page. Is there a way to process such spam without sharing my name?
  7. Well, they're older than 2 hours but not old enough to be archives! They are a couple weeks old. I want to delete some, because they contain the links to reports which I was referencing. Now that I've received answers to my questions, there isn't any further need to have them posted; and I don't like that anyone can still come along and view the links and get info from it. (Some names and some email addresses were not redacted on the reports). If I can't delete, I'd at least like the ability to edit so I can remove that stuff from being harvestable. I'm sure that this group, who are aware of the danger, must have written in the ability to do that? I just cannot find it. Help.
  8. I know this is an old discussion, but I could not find a way to delete or edit previous posts. I came to the link mentioned above by a few different routes, but all that remains there these days is the message below. So, where is the edit or delete button? "Sorry, there is a problem The page you requested does not exist Error code: 1S160/2"
  9. Hi, I just submitted some spam and got the report https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6325337362zc09890f66e8db77091562e43958c9db1z The "report spam to" lines are forged-ip@don.spamcop.net and fbl-spamcop@ext.godaddy.com I am a noob, but the appearance of spamcop's name in these seems suspicious to me. Is this some spammers attempt to avoid being reported? Should I go ahead and click "send reports" on this?
  10. Thanks Lking, I have indeed pointed the spam out to my friend, and sent him the link to Spamcop, too! (actually, his email address was not in the FROM -- it was a fake address that contained his name but wasn't any actual address of his. Same effect, though). So tell me: on my report, at the bottom where it showed "send report to" (and that spdnetwork stuff), could I / should I have manually added some sort of abuse@gmail address to send the report to, also? I do understand that the spamcop system might be programmed to generally ignore the easily forged stuff, but since this one appeared to actually be trying to get my reply sent to it, could I have helped by reporting him/her myself? Is that something you would do?
  11. I got a spam that was trying to look like it was from someone I know. The "From" line on the spam showed his name, but the "Reply To" was a gmail address that had nothing to do with him. If I click "reply", the autofill address in the "to" line is that gmail email. I reported the spam and Spamcop came back saying that the reports go to "abuse@spdnetwork.net" and "support@spdnetwork.net". (Not the first time I've encountered crap from spdnetwork.net, whoever they are). Tracking URL deleted I'm just wondering why Spamcop didn't suggest sending the report to gmail? If the abuser is using gmail to phish, shouldn't they be notified too, so they can use their resources to hunt the guy (or at least shut down his account)? Maybe I don't understand, but that's why I'm asking the smarter people here! Thanks.
  12. Usually yes but it seems that if the spam is really long (lots of redirects and gibberish) then "show original" only goes so far, then stops. I can't get the rest of it to show, therefore it won't be complete enough to forward. But thanks for all your helpful suggestions, I really appreciate it! Nobody jumped in with any alternative email providers I might try?
  13. Another problem with reporting this way is that, because I use POP, everything I send from gmail webmail gets forwarded back to my computer's inbox. So I get an incoming email on my desktop for each report I forward to Spamcop. Apparently there is no way to set gmail to NOT put your own sent items into your inbox (with POP). The volume involved is certainly going to make this untenable. I'm back to having to choose between convenience vs active fighting. Argh. I hate gmail and I've only used it one week!
  14. New problem, I tried to do the process with some just now and got a "no header" error from Spamcop. The "show original" on gmail didn't give the entire message, it gave about a page and ended with "part 002", but there was no part 2. I'm thinking gmail just isn't any good for reporting spam. Can anyone suggest other webmail sites that work better but still offer spam folders?
