  1. Spamcop reporting URL Moderator Edit: Although not a Tracking URL, link does take one to see the spam (as submitted) .. thusly the spam as posted here in its entirety was deleted.
  2. For a list of words you can go to http://wiki.wordpress.org/?pagename=SpamWo...2226f4b0b45c541 For a spam score of an e-mail that going to send go to "SpamCheck" http://spamcheck.sitesell.com/
  3. This a new type of spam that I hate. The reason that I really hate it is because when I click on Report Message as spam it is to, Send a copy of the message to the Abuse Team at mailcity.com/lycos.com, which is one of my ISP(s) for e-mail, and Delete the message. When I pressed that button it did not delete the message . http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z814253428z29...2a7e51c3815e54z Headers of message... Edit: the entire (massive) spam was posted below .... the whole point of providing the Tracking URL is to prevent the posting of spam in here ... sucking up disk space, sucking up screen space, of very little value in most cases due to the white-space issues of this application .... Headers (and entire spam body) was deleted from this posting .....
  4. Updated info on the magnitude of these IP Addresses from senderbase.org Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average Last day 4.4 68% Last 30 days 4.3 26% Average 4.2 Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average Last day 4.3 -33% Last 30 days 4.4 -28% Average 4.5 From thread http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/remark,14271389 Where it says Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average Last day 4.3 2342% Last 30 days 3.8 562% Average 3.0 Why his chain letter went through ?
  5. Thanks for info. Post "semi-resolved." I sent a message to the admin(s) / Moderators.
  6. Is it abuse? What a person find that affending? I do not find it affending right now (Reason: I do not know what the user, in plain straight / regular english, just said).
  7. What is the ISP that you work for? I agree, you are not authorized to report e-mail as spam that is not intended for you. You can, regaurdless of the recipient, report all illegal porn.
  8. What is a provoking coda? What does the thought provoking coda mean? Should I reply to the person who sent this? If so, how? Or should I report as abuse to the admin of the server? Thanks in advance. PS. If wrong area to post this. Please just move it. A thought provoking coda. It's IRC, if you go in to see if there's a channel, the channel will be created just for you, and such is the way with old internet technologies. If a tree falls in the forest and there's nobody around........ And just what IS the point in having a party without any dancing girls ? Really, if you feel a need for a chat channel, feel free to create or takeover one. nobody else would appear to be interested. And if this is really what you would deem Serious, I'd hate to imagine how you would deal with personal tragedy, serious depression or some kind of addiction.
  9. For you users using FF (aka:FireFox) I found a cool extension. Yes it really, logged in or not, works on boards powered by phpBB. Sorry IE (Internet Explorer) users.. you are stuck reading other users post. IE users have to manualy ignore users. Firefox Extension: phpBB User Hide 1.2 This one is just a compiled Greasemonkey scri_pt, that is based on one made my Unarmed on the Mozillazine forums. Features: New For this version: Now works with quotes! Adds a little [X] in front of the username on every post in virtually every phpBB installation. Clicking the little [X] adds the user to your hide/ignore list.. basically you can’t see their posts unless you click a button to show them on a per-post basis. Click the X again and the user is removed from your ignore list, returning his posts back to normal. Really usefull if a certain member gets on your nerves, and you are at risk of being banned from the forum because of your retaliation posts against him Wink Download it here: [Mozilla Update] It will work with Firefox versions 0.9x to Deer Park (nightly builds). This extension runs without greasemonkey installed.
  10. http://netilium.org/~mad/dctf/dctf-1.wmv I do and will not copy, unless for ex: "open source", software. This video was great! Rewording because the video is kind of old but it still applies. Don't Copy That Floppy / Diskette / CD / DVD / HD (Hard Drive) / Jump Drive / Tape / NAS (Network Attached Storage) / or program.exe, program.zip, ETC [if something or things(s) not metioned]...!!
  11. All I can suggest is, "To prevent users from spamming that forum. Not only does the person need to confirm to post anything on that forum, also to have a URL listed in user profile."
  12. We keep on having users joining and posting Questionable hyperlinks. What can the site admins / Moderators do about this? It is getting very annoying. ( OLD: taken care of by site admins / Moderators ) Questionable hyperlink found in user profile Cyvellao ( http://compwise.cpals.com/phpBB2/profile.p...ewprofile&u=297 ) Website: http://distance.holmacollege.org/lmhc/ Occupation: education Interests: college, school, distance learning The URL http://distance.holmacollege.org/** Redirects to http://www.search-ok.com/search.php?q=**************
  13. I am sorry that is not possible. The e-mail is being rejected on the server side. The closest possible thing to that is called "Safe List." The very serious downside to this is that be using it, "Only accept incoming messages from addresses on this list." (code REF) Reference http://help.att.net/docs/use/email/gen/prb...pc-email-manage
  14. SSL Connection to AT&T (worldnet.att.net / att.net) from pool-*.phil.east.verizon.net (DSL service)
  15. How would I contant them? What is there e-mail address? What should I ask them / tell them? http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=blacklist...1&cop=&ei=UTF-8 This one is interesting to me http://obri.net/att/blacklist.html. As you read the correspondence going back and forth you can see AT&T Worldnet's postion and some "false postives."
  16. What about http://www.senderbase.org/search?searchString= ? Volume Statistics for this IP Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average Last day 4.2 53% Last 30 days 4.3 129% Average 4.0 Is this why the e-mail is being marked as spam?
  17. Help me please I got this e-mail saying, his e-mail was blocked. Can you tell me why?

It could be because of the number of AOL addresses on one of the two lists I have been using, but PennTeleData says it also could be that someone using AOL accidentally marked one of the emails I sent as spam, and now every email I send is flagged. All AOL users, please check your blocked senders list and see if ********[at]ptd.net appears on the list, or if my name is there. If so, please delete me from that list for the sake of the others on the list. This situation has forced me to rewrite the email address lists I had been using. I had the group's email addresses in two mailing lists to keep the number of names below 55. Now they want me to limit emails to 10 addresses, so there will be 9 mailing lists, and I will need to send the same email 9 times to get it to all. Your help will be appreciated before PennTeleData shuts down my email rights. Constant emailings of to 50+ addresses at a time would make my address look like a spam-meister. I will be trying a few other tricks to avoid problems with my email account, so you will find your groups number leading off the subject line. This is another attempt to not trigger spam software.
  18. Incompetent - I am assuming do not understand. How can I make them care or understand why? Ok, what would I say to the ISP? Ok, what does that mean?
  19. What could an user say this when reporting spam to mailing list owners without breaking any copyright law(s)? If not what could / should a user say? Please remeber that it has be to point and has to be less than, I think the last I checked, 500 characters Failure to follow these rules, (#1, #2, and or #3), your e-mail will be marked and or considered as spam. Please next time to be sure to send a confirm message confirming that I want to be on your mailing list. Then I must confirm that I want to be on your mailing list (for your reference some text from http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/104.html #1 Verify email addresses Sometimes, people will use a fake email address when signing up for something. Once in a while, this fake address can be someone else's real address. The recipient then sees your mailing as spam. Also, people have been known to take revenge on spam-fighters by signing them up for hundreds of mailing lists at once. Ideally, all mailing lists should protect against this. You can protect against this by asking each list subscriber to respond with a special code that you send out in email: 1. New user (Joe) asks to be added to list. 2. You send email with enable-code to Joe confirming signup. 3. Joe replies to your email. 4. Signup confirmed, and Joe is added to your list. This is the method most noncommercial lists use, as well as well run commercial systems like http://www.deja.com/ This is a bit of a barrier for a commercial list, so you may decide to avoid verification of this kind, but you should be extra careful in your removal procedures if you do forgo address verification. You should also be prepared for fallout from this (IMHO) bad decision. #2 ** Identify yourself clearly At the start of your mailing, identify your company and tell the recipients where you got their email addresses and when/where they authorized you to use their addresses for sending this mailing. For example "This email is sent from www.widgets.com. You authorized this mailing when you registered your widget on our web-site. See below for removal directions.") === End text from http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/104.html === #3 Also next time in your e-mail to me: (Some text from http://spam.abuse.net/marketerhelp/ First of all, we always think that more communications is better than less. If someone gives you an e-mail address at your web site, when you use it, mention where and and when and from what host or address you got it. For example, when sending out a newsletter, include at the bottom something like this: We were given your e-mail address at our web site www.<companyname>.com on <date> by someone coming from <hostname> <IP address>. This serves to remind people of when they subscribed to your site and helps reduce the number of complaints from people who forget they even asked for your newsletter. === End text from http://spam.abuse.net/marketerhelp/ ===== Now do you understand what these rulres are why they exist?
  20. What does etherdeath win for the first person to point it out a mistake is present? What does Miss Betsy win for getting the correct answer? What do I win for trying to guess the correct answer / for the first person to point it out why do I think is wrong?
  21. Wrong: "You may have An report emailed to you each day listing the new Held Mail you have waiting for you." Correction: "You may have to A report emailed to you each day listing the new Held Mail you have waiting for you." Correction: "You may have to An email report emailed to you each day listing the new Held Mail you have waiting for you." An comes before a word that begins with a vowel. For ex: An Airplane. PS. Please note does not have to be bold or Caps. I am just try to point it out. [EDIT] Thanks to etherdeath for pointing it out to me because I do not and can not use, not paying member , webmail. Otherwise I may of noticed it first.
  22. Has anyone seen these spam(s)? What you do about it? ex of spam received: Received: from rsuqd.com (itcdsl129219.iro.ptd.net[](untrusted sender)) by worldnet.att.net (mtiwmxc15) with SMTP id <2005051522502601500k8d2oe>; Sun, 15 May 2005 22:50:47 +0000 X-Originating-IP: [] From: KMFreese[at]lycos.com To: x Date: Sun, 15 May 2005 22:46:49 UTC Subject: Schily ueber Deutschland Importance: Normal X-Priority: 3 (Normal) MIME-Version: 1.0 Message-ID: <6a78__________fedf[at]lycos.com> Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" Lese selbst: http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/59427
  23. How would anyone write a very sophisticated algorithm? What language, if you know, is it? I assuming, regaurdless how huch I hate to assume things, that I do not know. If you knew what it (is / was) you would of told me the answer already. Sorry, but not at this time. I do not understand how to write program(s). I do understand how to write and read HTML. PS. Also when a spammer hide(s) their URL is it ok to change it back to normal? I have seen these tactics used before, it very annoying.
  24. Sometimes the spammers get smart how to hide their URL. For Example: Normal URL: <a href=http://somewebsitesomewhere">Click Here</a> Hiding URL Method #1: <a href="ht tp:// somewebsite somewhere">Click Here</a> (tracking URL of a real example of method #1): http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z754492201z99...d50279c7c6113dz Hiding URL method #2: <a href="http://rds.yahoo.com/S=2766679/K=help/v=2/SID=w/TID=F504_73/l=WS1/R=1/SS=26615472/IPC=us/SHE=0/H=3/SIG=11a2qtjp4/EXP=1114194155/*-http%3A//somewebsitesomewhere">Click here</a> It would be nice if spamcop.net could detect these methods and report the correct URL.
