Blog Post Spamdemic Map tracks a bad list rental

SUMMARY: No summary available.
Got two emails from very different sources today both recommending I check out which reveals the experiences of one guy, Bob, who gets a lot of spam. The cool thing is that Bob has done some heavy research to show the supply chain of how the poor email marketer ended up renting Bob's name from a spammer, whilst being under the impression that it was an opt-in, permission-based name. As Bob notes, he's not trying to run a blacklist, but rather trying to educate email marketers. While you're there, be sure to check out his Spamdemic Map (tm) -- it's even more fun than The Story of Nadine!
