Marty Posted May 27, 2010 Share Posted May 27, 2010 [soapbox][rant] Excuse me while I vent a little... GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (thanks I feel a little better now). This morning I found myself being joe-jobbed http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_job This happens from time to time, and it may be as a result of my SpamCop reporting for many years What was unique this time was that all the NDR's (bounces) came from just ONE ISP postmaster department BELLNEXXIA.NET I guess they never noticed that I have an SPF record on the domain indicating just one valid outgoing IP#. I have reported a small sample of the misdirected bounces via SpamCop, with a note, "YOUR spam did NOT originate here - why are YOU therefore spamming ME ?" and later adding, "Please learn about SPF http://www.openspf.org/". Can I sue them or ask the FBI to take action under the otherwise useless CAN-spam Act? Does anyone in the USA still not realise that the spammers scored a major coup with the naming of that act in that "CAN" means "toilet" there, but in most of the rest of the world "CAN" implies "allowed, or permitted"? Which of course CAN-spam does, allows them to spam at will (so long as they "allow" US to opt-OUT). Politics may be taboo here, but I gotta ask, "did anyone concerned with anti-spam actually vote for the moron that signed THAT one into law?".
