I don't know what makes you look more stupid - thinking that the original
post was spam, it wasn't, or that thinking that people in these groups
post with legit contact/ISP info in their posts.
Either way your a fucking idiot. Sell your computer and go for a walk ...
I have never heard of any ISP that would respond to a complaint issued on a
personal level. I think they have much more to worry about. You can't even
get decent tech support unless you have an Indian dictionary handy and they
are about to spend money responding to small time complaints.
But, gee whiz, GeeWhizzer. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy to do this.
I seriously doubt that it has a lot of effect, either, but I have seen
accounts closed, and spammers driven away from newsgroups for this. There
are even some newsgroups that are so notorious for reporting spammers, and
figuring out their paths that spammers actually avoid these groups.
This gives more space to talk about the topic of the group. You DO remember
the topic, don't you? And it's not ranting in obscene adolescent prattle.
Wassamatta? On track break again? Mommie went on the stroll and left you
home again? Call CPS this time. Now go buy some Clearasil and get to work
on those zits!
About two years ago, a Wisconsin state legislator proposed an "open season"
on feral cats. Anyone with a hunting license could pop as many as they
Shortly after that proposal, I ran into R. Lee Ermey ("Mail Call" host,
movie star), [ http://www.rleeermey.com/ ]
signing autographs at a convention. I explained the Wisconsin proposal and
then went on:
"So, Lee, I'm putting together a tape of celebrity 'cat-calls.' Would you be
interested in saying 'Here, kitty-kitty!' for the tape?"
He looked up from his autographing and said: "That is the MOST fucked-up
idea I have ever heard!"
If Ermey thinks it's a bad idea to harrass kitties, maybe you should
re-think your plan?
One reason I don't think this is a spam message is because it is so screwed
that the link is not even entered in correctly. It is this:
http://www.catrepellent.org and I have visited it and it looks like a nice
link. Some people do actually try to be nice and pass things along that
pertain to a particular group. There are many other posts to this group that
are obviously advertisements.
