spamgourmet Posted September 28, 2007 Share Posted September 28, 2007 This is josh, admin of a free disposable email address called spamgourmet.com - in case you're not familiar, we've been around since late 2000, and provide unlimited free auto-create/auto-destroy disposable email addresses that are great for preventing spam. We have about 160k users. Many of our users are also spamcop users, and report spam through spamcop. When they receive messages through spamgourmet, to unexpired disposable email addresses, the headers of the messages naturally contain the IP address of our server: 126.96.36.199 I am not familiar with spamcop reporting, but generally it has not been a problem because someone (either the user or the software or both) is smart enough to realize that the message originated elsewhere. But recently a user has made dozens of false spamcop reports against our server, for example: http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?i=z2449793937z8...62ede8c423c152z and our ISP is ***THREATENING TO SHUT US DOWN**** -- this is extremely frustrating, as you can imagine -- in this case, I've identified the user, attempted to warn him/her (the reports continued, deepening the concern of the ISP), and ultimately just disabled the related spamgourmet account, since making these false reports is in violation of our TOS. I thought spamcop had permanently whitelisted our server? Perhaps our IP address has changed from when that was done? Not sure, but I hope anyone reading this will understand that it's hard enough to fight the spammers -- friendly fire really sucks. Please -- anyone who can -- help out with this.
