RE: Signing up for spam?

Hi there Elliot,

We receieve a large amount of spam on our network, largely because we have email addresses on our website. An idea might be to get your email address onto a website that does well in the search engines, as some spam bots will collect your email address through search engines by then going onto your site, and then putting it into a database - this database is then sold / redistributed through the spam networks, then you get hit. Give it a go, and see what happens pretty quickly.



Kindest of regards,

Hamish Stanaway, CEO

Hi there,

I am interesting in getting as much spam as possible for an experiment
to eyemyspam () gmail com , the address that I used to sign up here.  So
far I've put a mailto on a high traffic site, and am experimenting
with newsletters, domain information, usenet, opt-out forms, and more.
 Are there any automated tools to sign someone up for a high volume of
spam?  Google didn't help much here.

Thanks,
Elliott Back
