    Thanks for sharing you SPAM, but I'm full.

    Have you tried contacting boxnix? I don't think they own wht.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    Darth is NOT "funny" but dead serious... so am I.

    You mentioned a few times now "that if my post is not appropriate" and blah... well IT IS not apropriate. Personally and speaking for the majority here (if not ALL) I/we don't care that you got spammed and we don't want to hear about it.

    I get 30+ spams each day. 2-3 of them are relayed via hosts I know or have heard of and they are active here. Ok, if I want to give a host a bad name intentionally then THIS is am efficient way although extremely gay!

    NocSol,

    Why are you getting exited about it?

    Trust me, I could care less about this spam and could care less about his offer.

    If you have no problem getting 30 + spam per day, then good for you.

    Do you think I cannot say anything here? Let see what the Moderator say about my post here.

    i view it as hypocritical to start a post complaining about spam, then to clain you could care less about it.

    "One of your clients has spammed me. "
    .. sure you dont care!

    Thank you for the spam report. This is not one of our clients. I doubt this actually came from our server. We received spam also from these idiots and lodged multiple reports. Maybe that pissed them off.

    DutchSchultz, if you and/or the person who emailed support would be kind enough to email me the FULL headers we'll take a look for you.
