Gateway Analytics Network is spamming via StreamSend. StreamSend, true to their usual colour, are turning a deaf ear to messages sent to abuse@.
Effortia Oy, an old acquaintance here, continues to spam Finnish B2B via ymlp.net / Your Mailing List Provider. YMLP is turning a deaf ear to complaints sent via email and their website. The spam-advertised websites are hosted by Hostingpalvelu.fi.
I see increasing deliverability problems for

In a blog post titled Email Segmentation Without User Data, MailerLite, aka UAB “Itema”, are putting forth the view that you should be “segmenting” by sending your contacts more email about the same basic idea with different subject lines to see which email performs the best.
Discussion on several anti-spam mailing lists is currently centering on the topic of how to best avoid MailerLite pre-emptively in its entirety, by IP, domain name, shoe size and other relevant parameters…
Way back in 2008 or so I briefly had an account at PRWeb, and in 2009 I unsubscribed. Imagine my surprise when I received the following on November 06, 2013. I complained to the ESP, Vocus, and I was told they were handling it. I was then informed by IP-holder Eloqua that Vocus had unsubscribed me, but I was not given any information about how my address was added to this list nor why I was spammed.
See Pt. II – this gets even better!
Xtravaganza.fi / kevytkauppa.fi (domains registered to In Shape VIP Oy Ab, and Edlit Production Oy, respectively), who look like they might be somehow related to Shape.fi, are spamming Finnish B2B addresses (including outdated and erroneous personal ones) to offer them “snacks you can eat with a good conscience”.
Over the past week or two, a new kid on the block has been announcing their arrival on the scene by spamming. A business formed over last Christmas, Fit Production Oy (ex M. Productions Scandinavia Oy, biz reg, founded by this person (Facebook link – don’t click if logged in to FB)) is advertising their new service, shape.fi in spam. Their spam service provider is the infamous VenaMail (MailCom Europe AB), who have a Spamhaus SBL listing to their name (and, one should hope, a few more on the way), and their ISP is Zoner, who some time back joined the ranks of the illustrious by complaining to the Data Protection Ombudsman about a public copy of a response of theirs (an unsatisfactory one of course) to a spam complaint (regarding spam they themselves have sent; so why am I even dreaming that Zoner would do anything about a spam-advertised site – they advertise their own services via spam, after all).
Nothing new under the sun: Koulutuspalvelu Vaikutus (www, biz reg), who share at least one player with a spammer we already know, PowerCompetence, continue to spam to sell their courses, with a travesty of an address file announcement that amounts to wiping their bottom ends with Section 25 of the Personal Data Act.
An address on my namesake domain had apparently subscribed to this list back in the days of old (before August 31, 2009, which is when they abandoned the domain). They took their sweet time before using the list – the first incident I witnessed was on August 9, 2012. (Incompetents’R’Us #1)
