    Dont you have unsubcribtion link so that if any users dont want to get your offers can cut them down? SPAmming in clear terms is not known to many people and those how know use it to max with any boundries.

    We did not sign up to any of hostechs services. So why did we receive the emails?

    A unsubscription link would be silly considering we never signed up for anything

    Regardless of what you're sending, it's still unsolicited email since no one asked for you to send it in the first place.

    From the book of WHT rules:

    "If you SPAM our members in any manner, your account will be disabled. Do not contact anyone to suggest your product or service who is not explicitly expecting you to contact them. If you gleaned information from anywhere other than the advertising forums and use that to contact someone and present an offer, it's SPAM."

    Spamming is when you send commercial email to someone who hasn't asked for it. We didn't ask for it. You're spamming. Stop it.

    Spamming is also contacting people without their consent. Unsolicited.

    We are not using WHT as to get the source of contact.Also send us your email address to which email was sent, We will make sure that you dont get any of our offers henceforth.

    Why should WE go out of our way to make sure you don't spam us again???? Obviously, you're using a dirty list in which to send out your unwanted commercial solicitations. STOP IT.

    If you're not using WHT to get your contacts, what ARE you using?!? Its sure one heck of coincidence that we're all here complaining about your dirty list.

    In other words, immediately discontinue using your dirty list and build a clean one from scratch. Spam me again and I'll report it to every list known to man.

    <edit> I don't mind a newbie emerchant not quite understanding the rules of spamming, but blatantly trying to get away with something and acting surprised when you get called out on it REALLY annoys the crap outta me. </edit>

    They spammed us as well. Spammers are disgusting and should be banned from anywhere they take refuge.

    We never signed up to be spammed, SPAM = UCE / Unsolicited Commercial Email.
