    I’m starting to get some stupid spam and it’s beginning to irritate me.
    Thought I’d save some of this spam and collect the IP addresses reported in the mail properties.
    All of this listed spam is addressed to one of my anonymous Email addresses that I use for this forum.

    I guess I could get another anonymous addr - and change this address – but I’d rather fight than switch.
    I can’t seem to backtrack and find an abuse reporting address.
    Anyone have any suggestions. ? .... I’m in a trouble maker mood.
    As near as I can tell - It looks like I may need a Chinese translator to report this spammer.

    Good luck with your fight!!

    When I seen "I'd rather fight than switch" and "I'm in a trouble maker mood" I had to check your profile to make sure you weren't the ex-wife.:) :) :)

    Didn’t really find anything that made any sense to me – other than “fighting back” can help and case the spammers some problems …. I’m all for that !

    So far – I’ve collected about 40 Spams sent from China … as near as I can from Whois… http://www.apnic.net/apnic-bin/whois.pl
    I was able to find, what I hope is, an abuse address for the ISP in China and have sent a report to them today.

    I sent a report to Castle Cops Wednesday … haven’t heard any response yet.

    Most of my Spam is coming in on a address that I use primarily for this forum … which makes me wonder how they got this address.
    I’m thinking – I did screw up once and post it “out in the open”
    It has been changed – And when I get through trying to Fight back …
    I just get a new “None Of Your Business” anonymous address.

    All of my spam is coming from mis-configured or un-trusted senders.
    I’m wondering why someone can’t write a Spam program that will just delete any mis-configured or un-trusted sender ?

    Speaking of Ex’s ....
    My son was telling me that his mother got suspicious .. and followed Hubby #2
    She found him at the local Car Wash with a female co-worker.
    …. Kinda gives new meaning to the old song … “Working at the Car Wash”

    To get even – She wouldn’t allow him to park the SUV in the driveway.
    …. This sounds to me like changing the monitor to stop a Spam Email attack.

    Anyway – He retaliated by getting a new SUV.
    …. Walking Problem solved.

    My wife and I were laughing about this earlier.
    …. Then she fixed me a fried Spam sandwich for Lunch.

    No Kidding.
    …. It just didn’t taste the same.
