fedup2 Posted April 18, 2006 Share Posted April 18, 2006 This is a place for myself and others to express our anger, disgust, outrage, and just plain exhaustion at the many self-righteous, self-appointed EMAIL-BLACKLISTING outfits proliferating on the internet. We recently closed one ISP account (because they were doing stealth spam-blocking without even telling their customers) and opened a new account with a different ISP. Imagine how horrified and angry we were to discover that our very first emails, sent out to some online auction winners, were somehow, for reasons unknown, considered "spam" and were "quarantined" rather than arriving at their designated receivers' in-box. Not only that, but once we figured out, by going into Webmail (something we detest and rarely use, preferring instead our own software and POP3 email services), that our outgoing emails, with cc's back to us, had been stuck in this Quarantine Limbo, we saw something called "REPORT THIS EMAIL AS LEGITIMATE MAIL" which we clicked on, thinking this would notify our ISP *not* to block our email. Instead of this occuring, the stupid and arrogant software/spam-system SENT OUR PRIVATE EMAIL OUT TO SOME spam-COPPING SYSTEM IN CANADA, complete with all our private info that had been directed to our auction winners!!!! It has now been many weeks, and we are STILL HAVING PROBLEMS with our auction winners NOT receiving our emails. We have no idea what the problem is, and we have called our ISP at least 5 or 6 times, to no avail. They are claiming that it is NOT their spam-filtering software that is the problem. However, when we check the IP numbers on our own outgoing emails, we find that something called NJARBL or something has listed that range of IP numbers as "open" relays, or something, which has apparently given those arrogant jerks the "right" to block our legit email!??? We are FED UP with the arrogant, self-righteous attitude that prevails with all you so-called spam-Cops. You are no better than the jerks running the U.S. government at this time, who are considering EVERYONE IN AMERICA as a potential terrorist, and stripping us of our civil liberties! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? You have no right to be intercepting our emails and blocking us from reaching our legitimae recipients. We have FREEDOM OF SPEECH (AND PRESS) IN THE U.S.! YOU ARE INTERFERING WITH OUR CIVIL RIGHTS. You need to find a better way to weed out REAL spam mail and stop blocking us legitimate emailers. This thread is to ventilate my anger and invite others who are p*ssed off to do the same. Thanks. PS Please do not bother to LECTURE or PONTIFICATE about (1) you need to find a better ISP or (2) you need to stop using CAPS. You guys with knee-jerk responses to CAPS need to grow up and learn that CAPS mean, (1) the person typing is P*SSED and wants you to know it, and/or (2) the typist has a vision problem. DEAL WITH IT.
