Break the hyperlink that includes your name, because if anyone clicks it, then your e-mail gets forwarded to the spammer letting them know you are a real customer...

just a suggestion...
ibneko From: ibneko Date: December 2nd, 2004 03:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, good point, thanks. Although it really doesn't matter, 'cause I've get waaaaay too much spam for it to matter anyways. (on average, 2-3 per hour)
tinkleneko From: tinkleneko Date: December 2nd, 2004 03:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
wo.... lots of writing/html stuffish *grimaces*
porsupah From: porsupah Date: December 2nd, 2004 03:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
Actually, in this case, it's "genuine" spam - m0.net is the outflow of hardcore "email marketing" company Digital Impact, who are hired by outfits like Comcast to spew forth their hired word. It's safe to drop (or block, where applicable) anything and everything from that domain.
ibneko From: ibneko Date: December 5th, 2004 08:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hm. actually, Comcast is the name of our cable company~ So I doubt they were hired by Comcast..............
porsupah From: porsupah Date: December 5th, 2004 08:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah, we're miscommunicating - I mean that this is a company that is hired by large companies for spamming (sorry, "customer relations management") purposes. The fond appellation for such operations is "mainsleaze" - poor behavior, but often not technically illegal. (In those cases where it is, the hiring company disowns responsibility for the actions of their "publicity" company, typically to be followed by more of the same)

This is, in all likelihood, at Comcast's request.
ibneko From: ibneko Date: December 5th, 2004 08:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hum, I see.... Interesting.
