Automate Spamcop Submissions 183

hausmasta writes "Spamcop is pretty much dependent on user input. If no one submits and verifies spam, then they will have no blacklist. However that whole submission and verification process is a bit annoying. Why should I bother to actually submit spam to Spamcop and have it verified? If I just delete it, that will take less time.. This tutorial shows how to automate the Spam Cop submission and verification process. All I do is just put the spam into certain folders and our good old friend cron does the rest."

    You made a few mistakes in your post so I'm fixing them for you.

    (Posting as AC, but I'm a registered user who posts often)

    (Posting as AC because I know what I'm doing is wrong and I don't want people to harass me over it)

    I work at an EMail marketing company (no, not spam) and we have had our servers placed on blacklists multiple times... you know why?

    I drain the life blood of the internet at a Spam farm and we have had our spambots placed on blacklists multiple times because the tripe we send out is flat out spam.

    People who are competetors to our clients signup a spamtrap email to their lists, getting our mailserver blacklisted for sending mail to an address -- even though the mail is a "are you sure you wanna subscribe?" message?

    People who receive our spam report it to RBLs and our spambots get blocked even though our spam has circular links which verify e-mails of the people that we spam.

    Your casual attitude toward "oh well, shouldn't have sent email to $secretspamtrap" without telling us *what* email or giving us details on how to avoid it in the future (like maybe adding your spamtrap domains to our lists that trigger "oh no, spammer" in our checks), you end up making RBLs more useless, and my job harder.

    You are making my life as a spammer more difficult than those web pages that said that I could make $5000/month from home said it would be. Please stop. We both know you want to buy Cialis, Viagra and refinance your mortgage so just click on the links already. Sheesh.
    There ya go, fixed your post right up. No need to thank me.
