WMTyson Posted February 3, 2004 Share Posted February 3, 2004 In a SpamCop mail page, there is a section [button: spam will cease](account terminated) By using this option, you tell spamcop that you have taken action against this spammer/system and/or you do not expect further spam regarding this issue. Usually this means the account has been terminated. Users trying to report this spam will be told that the issue is already resolved. A person who got a bounce message for a forged message allegedly from him to our site reported that bounce message. (The mail was to a mailing list where the software rejected his mail because he was not a member. Unfortunately the mailing list's bounce message was not according to RFC1894, but is obviously a bounce message.) I'm not interested in getting this person in trouble (I can imagine their confusion), but I do want to clear this report. The page linked to by the report gives two buttons spam will cease Append note only In our case, there was no spam. The sysadmin that responded to this report has declined to push this button because there was no spam and no action was taken. If it is correct to click on "spam will cease", I would urge a more clear statement that indicates this button is to be used if the report was in error. Elsewhere ( http://news.spamcop.net/cgi-bin/fom?file=146 ) I found a distinction between resolved and innocent. I don't want to say "resolved" if "innocent" is the correct response. Is it correct to use that button, or is there a different way to resolve this? The ID on the incident is 658728925 Thanks.... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
