p4f Posted June 13, 2012 Share Posted June 13, 2012 I registered in Spamcop two months ago. Immediately I began to submit all the spam I received. The spam has dropped by half after 10 days (from 600 to 300). That is amazing! So I kept fighting the remaining spammers. And two months latter I'm still reporting almost the same spammers, coming from a small network subset. So small that I started asking some sysadmins what they know about those networks. Some sysadmins already had worked in these networks and they told me the abuse team just don't care. In the best case they ignore the reports received. In the worst they submit the full report to the spammer which only serves the purpose to confirm the email address (using those tracking codes in the header and the body of the message, you know). So I stopped sending reports to these networks. But now I have a doubt. When I submit a spam, Spamcop shows me the complete trace. Before confirming the report, I turn off those checkbox regarding the networks I have mentioned before. This is a correct procedure? By doing this I keep contributing to increase the spam score of those networks? Or when I clear a checkbox Spamcop assumes the network was not involved in spam and therefore does not increase your spam score? Thank you very much.
