I've just received these 4 spams in the last hour. They seem to be arriving in pairs. 1. https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6432003135z85b1283f75fe26fc67527132f3879eacz 2. https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6432007009z4a4fd1a767cf2e2257b4392b71349c33z 3. https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6432011457zbe5b0b3621ce9e6e4bf5846e9a7a7999z 4. https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6432011515zfd9beaed8a2c8f9122436b50289c01ddz It would appear from the parse that the MailChimp abuse address gets the SpamCop "/dev/null treatment." I would have thought that an enormous mail forwarding organisation such as MailChimp ought to be investigating spammers and shutting them down, not ignoring SpamCop reports. It would also appear that SpamCop reports about the spamvertised Akamai links contined in those spams also get the same treatment, which mystifies me somewhat, considering that even though the reporting address is abuse-spamcop [at] akamai [dot] com, the reports are not sent because the annotation in the original parse states that akamai admins refuse to accept this type of report. If this is the case, why have a special "abuse-spamcop" account at all? WEIRD! I have a nasty feeling that I'm going to be getting a lot of spams like this, today, because it's quite unusual for me (a) to receive "paired" spams, and (b) to receive more than one spam pointing to the same host on the same day. (What I mean is that I usually get one copy per day of any given spam type). And the last time I received multiple copies of the same spam was a run of almost 500 on the same day, sent to one of my Gmail accounts about 5 years ago, just before that huge server takedown in wnich Microsoft and a few other major industry players were involved. Thoughts, anyone?
