I've received several complaints from people who are being spammed by a couple of former Members. Usolicited Bulk Email (UBE) is against the Terms of Service of just about every reputable outfit on the Internet, including (of course) pipTalk. The people sending these bulk invitations are certainly not supported by these forums, and are no longer welcome in these forums. Beyond that, however, there's not a lot I can do.
YOU, however, can do more. If you would like the spam to stop, you should start forwarding copies of anything sent diretcly to the people who are unknowingly enabling the UBE. Below, you'll find links which will provide more information for those who would like to know the details. I urge you to educate yourself, but I also know most of us are busy people who just want results.
That's easy, too. When your receive a spam from any AOL address, you should click on the "Forward" button and send it directly to TOSEmail1@aol.com with a short note that it is spam you would like stopped.
If you receive spam that is promoting a web site at everyone.net, you should again Forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org with a quick "stop sending spam" message.
I can't stop this spam from hitting your email box, but aol.com and everyone.net can.
