Response on reporting spam


Recommended Posts

Dear team,
After reporting spam, I mostly get more spam, which after two days or so minimize. Can you tell me what the cause of that can be?
The link I use to report is https://www.spamcop.net
I also see that some spamreports are /dev/null'ed. Does that mean that you don't send out any spam complaint to the abuser?

Once you are on a spam list what you are seeing is normal, reporting spam is the only way of attacking back!
/dev/null'ed means the abuse address bounces or the abuse desk does not want SpamCop reports

This could also be a form a listwashing where the spammer might be trying to figure out who is reporting.  So they increase their spam on certain people until the figure out who is reporting them.  Also could be some sort of retaliation if they know your address already.
