Do Not Email Site Hawked In Spam

from the spam-scam dept

More anti-spam scams out there, apparently. I’ve actually seen “” in various Google text ads, claiming that they run a “do not spam list”. They may have such a list, but there’s no reason for anyone to actually use it – so, anyone who gives them money is throwing it away. Worse, they seem to be spamming people to tell them about the list. They say it’s okay because people can “opt-out” of the spam, showing just how much they don’t understand spam. Would you want to be on an anti-spam list that thinks it’s okay to spam people? This is simply a money-making scam that is only likely to get you more spam.
