Look at ht tp://www. digitalgangster. com/ 4um/

I found this spammer forum through Wired magazine. I'm kinda new to the world of spam reporting.....I dont exactly know what to do. I shadowed the place for a couple of days and found the big spammers. Dont worry my account there is under a different name.

I did the whois.net lookup and ytcracker [bryce e case according to spamhaus] seems to own it, confirming what Wired said.

Can I report it to the server ISP? How would I do that? Whats the best way to find them?

I'm going to start trying to see if people will buy mailing lists and spamware to confirm even more people. Can someone help with with the spammer lingo so they think I'm one of them. There is a private spammer chat section Im trying to become part of so I can leak it to spamhaus.

Heres the guys who are causing most of the trouble from that place.

ytcracker - Runs the place and owns the domain. Infamous "nerd rapper" [lame, I know it] and porn spammer. ROKSO listed.

rmk - ytcracker's #2 in command. Porn cam spammer. ROKSO listed.

egod - Works with ytcracker and rmk in spam and music. Porn spammer.

phlows - Works with ytcracker and rmk in spam and music. Porn spammer.

bis1 - Works with ytcracker and rmk in spam and music. Porn and pill spammer.

Mix - Works with ytcracker in some capacity. Didnt mintion spam but probably does.

Gza - Sells porn, probably by spam.

g - Sells porn, probably by spam.

stang - Sells porn, probably by spam.

MX - Hacker and myspace worm writer.

camO - Lexusnexus hacker. Did the Paris Hilton phonebook thing. Just got out of jail. Probably spams cams based on name.

Mysterio - Self admitted porn spammer. Terminated by maximumcash porn affiliate for spam.

Meca - Self admitted porn spammer, stock broker.

Good luck with your quest!

I decided long ago that the civilized, natural, and rational way to deal with spam is to use blocklists so I don't know much about who spammers are. If one doesn't get their spew, but blocks it, who cares? They and their customers can do whatever they want to.

hello, i am pad, and apparently, i am a sociopathic spammer.

first of all, i'd like to thank "shadowmaninuk" for the giggles, because this thread is nothing less than hysterical.

i'd like to take this time to make it abundantly clear how incorrect these accusations are.

i've never admitted to spamming, mainly because i don't spam. as a matter of fact, i will paypal any of you $100.00 the very moment you show me one instance where i said i was a spammer.

the following people are not spammers, in fact, they are idiots:

magik - who is actually a 20 year old single parent female with very limited computer skills.

josegarcias - doesn't know squat about anything.

capone - isn't intelligent enough to halt his online poker addiction, never mind get through mail filters.

the following people are not spammers:

ytcracker - former spammer to my knoweldge, but not anymore.

rmk - definately not a spammer.

egod - former spammer to my knoweldge, but not anymore.

phlows - former spammer to my knoweldge, but not anymore.

bis1 - the only thing this little man does wrong is leave threatening voicemails on ytcracker's cell phone.

mix - doesn't sell porn, doesn't spam, doesn't do anything except maintain a respected and popular hosting company.

nofx - former spammer to my knoweldge, but not anymore.

timex - former spammer to my knoweldge, but not anymore.

gza - doesn't sell porn, doesn't spam, doesn't do anything except maintain a respected and popular hosting company.

g - is a brilliant young man who doesn't need to resort to lazy marketing techniques such as spamming.

stang - stang is a legit webmaster, i've known him for quite some time and he's never mentioned spam to me.

mx - mx is definately a hacker and worm writer, but what does this have to do with spamcop.net?

cam0 - "probably spams cams based on name" huh? lol, his name is cameron, cam0 is derived from his name. he is also not allowed to touch a computer for a very long time. definately not a spammer.

themaSk - i met "themask" in real life, he's a gamer, definately not a spammer.

meca - hasn't spammed in over 8 years. meca is simply not a current day spammer. he works a respectable 9 to 5 job.

ryan l - biggest anti-spammer on digitalgangster.com, ryan thinks spammers are lazy.

a2 - to my knowledge a2 hasn't spammed in years.

mysterio - former spammer to my knoweldge, but not anymore.

shasta - i know shasta, i also know that he owns a respected hosting company. he doesn't spam.

in closing,

i invite every anti-spammer on this forum to start lurking digitalgangster.com

even if somebody from dg is a spammer, they'd never be retarded enough to openly talk about it.

you'd all have better luck on www.gofu**yourself.com

i also suggest you all go fu** yourselves

love,

pad the sociopath

<<<offsite llink removed>>>>

and the guy who said [m] is from genmay.com, which is the most incredibly lame forum on the internet.

So, pad, why do you hang out where you do? What do you talk about?

Not that I really care, but it is your word against the OP's. There is no evidence either way from this thread that you either are, or are not, a spammer.

In fact, the only thing that can be ascertained about you is that you are vulgar.

You forgot to profile me. My name on Digital Gangster is Alescoman. I make futile attempts at writing code, and have sex with very large women and post all of my sexual conquests all over the forums. I am widely known for the pic "Natalie.jpg" in which I posted, showing the girl I lost my virginity to, who weighed more than I do.

Thank you for your time.

nofx - Self admitted porn spammer. LSD addict and unstable conspircy theorist.

Ya, you hit that last part right on the head, at least the unstable conspiracy theorist part.

lol. Alright people, you are getting all bent out of shape over what one user posted on the forum (and note that it is that users first post). Noone here has taken either side in the matter, though I must admit alescoman's post did give me a bit of a chuckle for the morning.

And to repeat what was said earlier:

We tend to like to see proof, but this is the Lounge where there is a bit more latitude allowed in what is stated.

Also, please keep it clean here? We try to run a respectable forum that many different types of people can come and get the information thayt they need. Some of those people could be offended by your use of the English language.

I'll give you credit for trying, but your information is SO wrong....

If you were to gather information, about the Digital Gangster forum, try to read it for atleast 2 weeks.

This is no spammer forum, sure some people were/are spammers but we never discuss methods, strategys, etc.. Your gathered information is VERY wrong. If you feel like you accomplished something here, unfortunately, you didnt.. You got the wrong idea of the whole thing, and think you are very certain to take it down. Not happening.

"I'm going to start trying to see if people will buy mailing lists and spamware to confirm even more people. Can someone help with with the spammer lingo so they think I'm one of them. There is a private spammer chat section Im trying to become part of so I can leak it to spamhaus."

You're funny. Spammer lingo.. lolllllll. The private section your talking about, is probally the other section where other members post up "mini-jobs" to do small work.. like, design me a website, code me this small program, etc.

Nice try though!

Getting tired of the language used folks. Yes, the filters are working, but there is no need of it in the first place. The threat posts have been removed, some users have already managed to get themselves banned. If the thrust of this "get folks here and post about the 'real' situation" .... it really isn't working all that well.

The Lounge area was set up for some wide latitudes, however, there are limits involved.

Wazoo:

At this point I would almost say we should either close this topic with a big note that the message was only the opinion of one poster... or simply move the topic to the hidden area.

There are no responses to the original poster, no follow up by that poster. It seems to have been simply put here to try and stir up controversy or possibly to get hits on that site/searh engine fodder.

Agreed that it does seem like nothing but a timewaster.

I broke the URL quite a while back. However, the assumption would be that the forum referenced assumedly has traffic in place inviting folks to visit here and make their thoughts known ...??? I have yet to read anything from either point of view that has got me interested enough to visit it myself.

With the rash of incoming users that have only signed up to post into this Topic, closing it suggested that yet more Topics would end up being created, once again complaining about the censorship .... I had intended to let it ride until the rush was over.

And of course, if you think this is bad, you wouldn't believe the PM traffic I'm getting. (which by the way, makes me even les interested in meeting all those "fine folks" in that other Forum) .....

With the amount of .gov traffic that DG gets, no one would post ANYTHING relevant to illegal activities, even if they did do it.

and I know exactly what started this. Someone visited, read the thread regarding how people spammed 10 years ago back in 1996, and thought for some reason the people still did it today??? That was half a lifetime ago for most people on that forum.

Hey guys what's going on in this thread?

The original poster obviously thought he knew a lot more then he did, and wanted to play Barney Fife.

For your info I am not a spammer, I am simply the webhost of ht tp:// www.digitalgangster. com as well as many other websites.

ht tp:// www.made2own. com check it out for yourself.

Since when have you seen the apache logs? You know about as much as these guys do. Nice way to try and fit in though.

As stated, I had already 'broken' the initial URL posting. These last ones were broken also.

I think there's more severe issues at hand besides just too much spam if your users cannot put a link back together in an address bar. (ex. too many ID 10 T errors that are causing spam and malware in the first place???)

If you're doing it to avoid passing referrer tags, no one cares about those over there.

YTC made a thread a few months back, said something to the effect of 1% of traffic coming from .gov and .mil, iono I took his word for it

the board got erased so I can't prove it, but I just remember reading that
