kac Posted September 11, 2004 Share Posted September 11, 2004 I stumbled in here because of a post on my host's message board about the server I'm on being listed on Spamcop. I think he made a mistake because I can't find anything about my ip here. Anyway... I have to say that this is probably one of the rudest forums I've ever been to. Every post I've read where someone voices a complaint, everyone jumps on them. I've read several posts where the poster didn't care anything about the complaint, but just how to prove the orginal poster wrong or to make the person look bad. Comments about the person being silly for relying on e-mail, tell me that 90 percent of websites don't rely on e-mail. Now maybe it's me but comments like"It has been found that most people that come in here and rant like you have end up finding out it is their own fault due to their careless abuse of the system." only serve to humiliate the original poster. Then there is the "No, would you really expect that from a rant and rave muntchkin troll? " (from the same thread). Here's one from a different thread, " "Double-opt-in" .. sure, in some circles, this is the "magic" phrase ... to the anti-spam folks in general, this is pretty much spammy-speak." This is calling someone a spammer to me. It sounded like the person believes that he/she is doing what he/she can to not spam, and they accused of being a spammer. There area a dozen more examples just like the ones I've pasted here. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the complaints are valid, but geez, come on, this is a forum for discussion and not a place to take your bad day out on someone. It kind of reminds me of a bumper sticker that used to be pretty popular, "Mean People Suck", only in this case it should read something more like "Mean Boards Suck." Not that it will do any good to some of the people here, but many of us don't have your "knowledge" of spam, and come here for help or to voice a concern. kac Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
