When I say, “I hate spammers” I mean that in the deepest sense of the word. We’re talking HATRED beyond what I can even say in this post without sounding like a completely crazed psychotic!
So what brought this post on?
Well, first of all I have always hated spam as much as anyone else. Maybe even more since I’ve been an internet marketer for quite a while and I get more of it than the average person. Nobody likes seeing their email filled with a bunch of crap everyday.
Plus, spammers ruin it for us legitimate internet marketers who build true double opt-in email lists, follow all the rules, and send out information to people who actually asked to receive it. And never spam!
But the reason I am writing this post right now is because some asshole has been spamming people like crazy with ads pointing them to one of my websites.
I’ve had my domain provider threaten to shut down my account and my webhost suspended my account twice today. Both were resolved once I explained to them what was going on but it still pissed me off! And now I have complaints noted on those accounts so if someone complains in the future they will see that it has happened before and I will have a harder time getting myself cleared of it.
Plus, I have had a ton of people write to me to complain and some of them have called me every name under the sun… none of them were nice either. I try explaining to them that it wasn’t me but most of them don’t believe me. And why should they? I don’t blame them.
My name, reputation, and business are all getting ruined because some stupid spammer doesn’t care about anyone but himself.
I’ve tried blocking him and taking other actions to stop this from happening but so far none of it has worked. He just keeps on sending out the mass spam emails without even caring that it is doing nothing for him, and it is hurting me and deceiving the people he is emailing.
If I could get my hands on whoever it is doing this it would not be a pretty sight. In fact, I would probably be thrown in jail when it was all said and done. I don’t care, it would be worth it! That’s how pissed I am.
Anyway, that is enough of my rant. I just had to get this off my chest and I figured a good way to do that would be to write up a blog post about it.
Let this be a lesson folks – You need to be careful because stuff like this can happen to anyone at any time for no good reason.
Now I am heading off to try to figure out more ways to stop this spammer.
If you have any tips to help me I would love to hear them.
