A new Idea

by BFilmFan In reply to The spammers are at it ag ...

I think we should forward ALL our spam from TR to Martha Papila, Vice President of Public Relations from Cnet at:

Martha.Papalia@cnet.com

Her phone number is:

617-225-3340

Just to be nice, send the CEO of Cnet (Shelby.Bonnie@cnet.com) a copy too.

Isn't it thoughtful of CNet to give us numbers to call enpowered people who can resolve these issues? (Evil, evil grin)

That really needed an evil grin

I'm still choking on the peppermint that I was sucking on when I started reading your response.

OMG how did that happen? I've just seen my site rating what's going wrong here? Number 1 of the top 100 is everyone away playing in the sun or something?

And I was working so hard for a site rating of 666 or failing that I'd settle for 69.

Do you guys

really get that much spam? I haven't gotten a single thing from TR or CNet that I didn't ask for. Then again, I'm not as active as I once was on this forum.

Actually this is the first that I've got

But it was so blatant that it just got to me. I only have one item listed to this e-mail account and it is CNet and coming through the Peer Mail I did feel obligated to report it.

Also the action was fast as the account has been suspended or so I've been told in an E-Mail from CNet they don't want to see this abuse any more than the rest of us here.

Now if only the Debian mailing lists could be so proactive in preventing spam things would be good.

Wow

This is interesting, you and Oz getting the same message.

Perhaps this is the consequence of having a high profile in the Discussion Center.

Perhaps you and Oz can work together and back scam this person.
