    Yep and they really annoy me

    spammercenter.net

    Used to get them all the time from them crawling the websites... never had one after crawling a forum post though.

    Not had one from the website crawls either since replacing all email addresses with javascript links so I'd recommend this method to anyone who's having trouble (if anyone wants the code let me know and I'll dig it out).

    They're leaches.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    I've never gotten one with WHT as 'my website', (though we do get them with WHT as *the* site they're spamming). Pretty funny. Can someone please visit them, rip off their legs, and beat them with their own legs?

    i got 4 emails from trafficmagnet. I felt daring so clicked the "unsubscribe" for an email address i don't intend to use much longer, so we shall see if that email address gets signed up to a few dozen other spam lists.

    Kinda ironic they claim they're "opt-in", but they pulled email addresses off our webpage that are managed with catch-all features, and have no physical accounts (aka how would that have ever opted in)? . Spam sucks.

    I have had those from time to time, with my different domains in place of the WHT link.

    It seems they've added FULLPROMOTE! as another way to spam us. I got six today.

    They are sending it to people's email addresses, not through the forum. They aren't members that I know of.

    *GAH* i just got another volley from trafficmagnet im soooo tempted at this point (after 50+ emails from sites that all look extremely similar and i can only assume are mirrors) to just call up the phone number listed on their site/on their whois lookup and just scream "F*** OFF!" and hang up , i wonder if that'd work.

    I would have suggested reporting them, but they are hosting through a line from bta.net.cn (who also run btamail.net.cn) - a major haven for spammers.

    After reporting 50+ spammers over the past few months, and not getting a single result, no replies back from most abuse emails even, i've given up on that awhile back.

    Maybe we should all call them up and ask why they're spamming us.

    Why? Because the place is filled with potential customers.
