pierre Posted December 7, 2004 Share Posted December 7, 2004 We run a list, I don't know how to call it now as I learn more every day. Let say it's a "unique-token-confirmed-opt-in" list we can't call it double opt-in as we send a unique token but not the client IP... A person, lets call this person John register to our list: - he receives a confirmation email (email 1). John click on the confirmation link. - he receives an email (email 2) confirming his confirmation along with a link to change his preferences and to unsubscribe. What does john? He reports 'email 2' as spam using one computer (IP 1)... we got a munged report but with the token we are able to remove and black list John. Few hours later he reports 'email 1' as spam using another computer (IP 2)... Do you thing that was enough? No He registers using IP 1 and a new email address and re-play the game again... Why? not a clue... may be someone who has time to loose. We trace both IPs to the Netherland and added coding to our list to not only black list emails but also IPs. Cost of spam is really on both side of the fence, users and list owners. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
