traci Posted June 12, 2009 Share Posted June 12, 2009 I am not trying to be a spammer, I hate spam as much as everyone here does. But for the past two weeks I have had a lot of spam issues. I have been running a free stuff website for the past 4 1/2 years and this is the first time in all of this time that I'm having these problems. I send a daily newsletter to folks who have visited my website and used the sign up box and then also confirmed their subscription in their email. I send my newsletter to these subscribers through Aweber. My question is... If these subscribers have double opted in, meaning they've told me TWICE they want my email then how in the world could it be considered spam when they receive it??? I have been questioned by my website host as to if I am spamming and I had to prove to them that I am not and they closed the case. And now today the website that I use to shorten my urls is questioning me as to if I am 100% sure I am not spamming. I have not heard back from them as of yet but in their questioning email I noticed at the bottom of it, it says if they feel I am spamming they will report me to Spamcop. And that is how I ended up here. I want to gain as much knowledge about spam as I possibly can because I do not want to be a spammer in any way shape or form, that is not my attention. So what should I do??? Any and all suggestions are extremely appreciated, thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
