There are many domains with no valid senders.
Two things, first my anti-virus program will not accept the downloader needed to download the knujon app. Love it!!
Second, changing e-mail addresses is a huge pain especially if everything goes into that one bucket. The answer is to set up a number of e-mail accounts. One for family and close friends. Another for established business relationships (banks, stores, suppliers, etc). Another for unverified contacts (I have one for trash@[domain name]). And so forth. If the trash account gets hit, look over the sites which are worthy of moving to a new address and then blow that address away away. Meanwhile your really important addresses are much less likely to get hit.
I tried to click the "Report Post" button on that rikiSEO message (just before this one) but was refused permission to do so. Ironic that someone can post spam in a thread about controlling spam and yet I can't report it...
I got that rikiSEO message also, of course.
Looks like someone more awesome than I was able to delete it.
The never ending struggle.
http://www.submanifold.be/triade/mis...n/gknujon.html). Just click on it and download. You really don't even need the gkunjon app. You don't even need an account a knujon. Anyone anywhere can just forward all their spam to KNUJON@COLDRAIN.NET . It's just that using gknujon automates the process by zipping, sending, and deleting in seconds.
If I own a home with nice landscaping and try to keep my yard looking presentable, what would I do if I had 3000 visitors a day cutting through my yard or through my garden, or using my newly paved drive way as their personal U-turn spot? Besides being a little miffed I would defend my turf. I'd put up a fence or gate and even put in a walk way so that my lawn and garden don't get ruined by trampling. I may even put up a 'no trespassing' sign. I would locate my physical mail box in an area where the post person can deliver my mail with out trampling through my garden. I personally would not be complacent or suck it up if i had ten 'trespassers' a day let alone hundreds or thousands. Cyber space or real space, defend your turf.
I like what I read about gknujon and plan to use it. I did not know such a company existed. Thanks for the post and thanks for the gknujon post. That certainly made my day.
I think one reason so many put up with it is similar to mine: we don't trust automated spam filtering, no matter how good someone else might say it is. Everything that goes into my spam is not spam. Yeah, Spam Assassin is pretty good at learning spam and so is Thunderbird's junk filter. But I still find one or two non-spam emails when I go through my junk folder weekly. Sometimes they are personal, but frequently they are business - sometimes even legitimate communications from the "sales" department at my own company. I cannot just automatically delete it or forward it all to knujon, no matter how much I would like to. Especially not if my legitimate business and social acquaintances are going to be gone after by knujon. That wouldn't be right.
But I am interested in forwarding real spam to knujon's email address. I wonder if I can go through the junk filter and then highlight it all and forward it all to them in one package? Or maybe I can use their zipper/forwarder on the folder after I've gone through it?
Someone has recently started sending a whole variety of spam emails to one of my addresses and they are so varied and so legitimate in their format that Spam Assassin is not marking them and my junk filter is not filtering them. I'd sure like to see them taken down.
Oooh. Now I see. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks!
I really love the gknujon idea. Death to SPAM! My husband & I are thinking about making a bumper sticker:
The more SPAM I receive
The more I question one man, one vote
Now that our lounge is using vBulletin (which is going to to be a 'set in my ways' learning curve for me), how are we to go about reporting spammers on our lounge? Just yesterday I posted a new thread under Windows General forum which now has one reply. It is a spam reply, written in Chinese (?). If someone is familiar with this vBulletin layout will you kindly post the method for reporting spam in our threads? I liked (not) spam a lot more when it was still something you could buy in the grocery store and then slapped between two pieces of bread! Where was that 'death to spam' bumper sticker back then? LOL
