jwq Posted May 11, 2005 Share Posted May 11, 2005 I have reporting-only accounts. On my accounts which receive only a trickle of spam (less than 10 spam messages per day on average) reporting the spam does not take a lot of time. I have recently received an account which has been reactivated after 6 years of disuse and it receives an average of 34 spam messages per day. Most of these messages are sent at a time while I'm asleep and in the morning I can have over 40 messages to report. The burden of reporting these messages is not trivial, particularly when I use dial-up. Even with the fastest copy-and-paste web submission, it can take up to 30 seconds to report each spam message (email submission is significantly longer). The parsing and the need to click buttons to both submit and report the spam messages one-by-one takes most of the time. As it seems I'm not making much of a dent in the spam flow and the burden of reporting spam is high, I'm considering giving up reporting spam received at this account. Before I do that, is there an easier way of reporting spam? It would be much quicker if I could simply batch-submit spam in an email and/or batch-confirm the sending of reports. Is there a way to do this? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
