Spam on this group

Discussion in 'Darkroom Developing and Printing' started by Richard Knoppow, Apr 22, 2008.

  1. I would like to enlist the aid of others on this list
    in reporting spam. Nearly all the recent spam to the
    rec.photo groups is from Google Groups. To report the spam
    you must see the entire original post. For Outlook Express
    click on file/properties/details/original message copy the
    entire message and paste it into a new _e-mail message_. The
    address is included in the header. Just copy that and paste
    it into the address field of your message. The subject can
    be simply "spam".
    If we complain enough Google will ban the person doing
    this. The more complaints the better.
    Most spammers never look at the groups they spam and
    will just laugh at you if you complain on the list. Complain
    to the source. Because most server operators have awakened
    to the fact that they need to ban open relays its easier now
    to discover the actual source of the spam.

    I am in. That spammer sent me garbage to my URL address, for some stupid
    reason I joined a local Chamber of commerce and they list my email in
    the open. Ever since I have gotten a lot more junk.

    That would include bugs, spiders and snakes. Strange how Canon cameras
    and the multiple personality users of them seem to all reside in
    Australia with the bugs, spiders and snakes. Then again maybe when
    lives in a penal colony one has enough time to kill to read every past
    issue of National Geographic. Given all the Canon advertising maybe it
    leads the feeble mind into believing its the only camera able to
    properly portray all those bugs, spiders and snakes.

  4. I think my kill file now includes every brand of watch,
    ladies handbag, over-priced tennis shoe and popular
    medication. And since I also subscribe to r.p.e.35mm
    it includes the name of every modern Canon camera and
    half the population of Australia.

    My kill file now includes *all* posts coming from Google, with the
    exception of those I've put on a white list.

    I reported for quite a while, but gave up in the end. Google are just
    not interested. That finally made me take the plunge and filter out
    *all* posts coming from GG, with the exception of some valuable
    posters whom I put on a white list.
