It is with delight that I have just read the ICO’s blog on its international work and how the UCENet (formerly London Action Plan) collaborates with MAAWG.
Looking forward to more of the same in San Francisco, Feb 20-23, 2017!
Excellent post from Mickey Chandler over on Spamtacular.com, one of the blogs we refer to in the sidebar: https://www.spamtacular.com/2017/01/04/back-to-basics-why-have-a-policy/
If you want to successfully deliver mail into the inboxes of your recipients, you must abide by the mailbox provider’s policy, and the ESP’s opt-in requirement simply exists in order to assist you in complying with the mailbox provider’s policy. In other words the ESP’s policy exists for one simple reason: To help you succeed.
Please find enclosed a few recordings of harassing telephone calls made from +358-41-3633495, the registered telephone number in keyup.fi, Dysnomia Oy. The voice does not belong to “Katariina”, obviously, so it’s “Niklaus”, and even though their Finnish is not native (rather Estonian-influenced), it clearly isn’t spoken by Kenyans either (w.r.t. the registered owners of Dysnomia Oy) or Arabs (w.r.t. Mohammed Sahran, the registered owner of dsn.fi, one of their spamming domains).
This week two of my favorite blogs, Mickey Chandler’s Spamtacular and Brian Krebs’ KrebsOnSecurity, have posted unusually informative and thoughtful articles about two spam-related DDoS attacks. One occured three years ago; the other within the past week.
For those who prefer to read comments and kudos AFTER reading the original articles, here are direct links:
The Mainsleaze Blog has moved to yet another new server, this one running CentOS 7. Everything appears to be working properly, including the pages and links that were broken on the first server. Please review the site, attempt to post comments, etc. If nothing breaks for the next 48 hours, I will declare victory and shut down the old server for good. 🙂
Thank you, everybody, for your patience!
The Mainsleaze blog moved to a new server over the weekend. A number of odd bugs ensured. A day’s research and efforts to fix the problems exposed some serious underlying bugs in the most recent version of the underlying operating system on the server. We reverted to the old server til we can get the new server properly debugged or upgrade to a less buggy OS.
Sorry for the delays! 🙂
Looking forward to meeting y’all! Atro
A recent post on LinkedIn from Finland’s finest is claiming to debunk all the arguments for why spam might be bad.
Filip, it doesn’t occur to you that the Internet community understood this to be the case long before big mail receivers and ESPs existed? You might wish to google Gary Thuerk, for example. On May 3, 1978, when he sent the first spam ever, you were all of minus nine years old, weren’t you. 🙂
So cut out the paranoia, it got old long before you had even got into the business.
