Report Spammers for Free at SpamCop.net

SUMMARY: No summary available.
So what does it say about the state of SPAM that I'm actually relieved to the point of reading and taking messages seriously when they are not from slimy sexual-related spammers?? I got an email tonight from a guy who claims to "stop snoring", and, I didn't even mind that it was spam (even though I live alone and if the cat snores, who cares?) Such a relief to get spam that wasn't from someone who wanted me to spank 18 year old virgins or something.. you know?

That said, quite a few Sherpa readers have written in asking how to control the spam they get in their in-boxes. I'm no expert (more used to advising potential spam-senders than recipients) but have heard that a great place to report spammers for free is SpamCop.net. Last time I was there last week a few well known companies were listed as spammers, including InternetWire which charges its users a few hundred bucks per release to send out PR online. Since then InternetWire who according to their spokesperson take spamming accusations VERY seriously, have not shown up again ... yet.
