Spam - How to Report it

Written by Joanne King

Iím sure you find spam just as frustrating and annoying as I do. So Iíve done some investigation in how to report it to get these people hopefully in a bit of strife! And put spam to an end or at least lessen it ;-)

You see, I actually didnít realize for a while I was actually makingrepparttar situation worse. You ever receive those spam emails where you KNOW for sure you NEVER signed up to receive their emails and then they provide an unsubscribe link downrepparttar 140487 bottom?

Anyways, here I was clickingrepparttar 140488 unsubscribe button on all these annoying spam emails thinking I was getting my email address removed from their database where all I was doing was confirming that my email address was active and I was reading their spam emails.

Here is how YOU can report these spammers (and hopefully lessenrepparttar 140489 amount that drifts in and out of our inboxís every day).

Has anyone else noticedrepparttar 139544 sudden blast of unsolicited e-mail (spam) loaded with url's forrepparttar 139545 unsuspecting and curious Internet surfer to click on?

What's even better,repparttar 139546 bulk of this SPAM is in a foreign language. I was at a neighborhood party this weekend and you can't imaginerepparttar 139547 number of people who asked me for assistance with this. They have no idea what to do.

The sad fact is there are a lot of Stupid People who have nothing better to do and can't seem to find a better way of making a buck than Annoying Me and everyone else subject to their stupidity with spam. I guess that's a little harsh. Not really.

How Does The Average Person Deal With This


I wrote in a previous article how bad a feel forrepparttar 139548 average person having to deal with such things. It is increasingly becoming a nightmare for all to deal with. Forrepparttar 139549 technical among us, it's not as bad given that we deal with such things on a technical level almost everyday.

Given this current flood of SPAM I thought I would post an article I wrote quite some time ago. It's a short article, and may be old news for some, but I can tell you that many people still don't followrepparttar 139550 basic's when dealing with SPAM.

How You May Be Helping Spammers


I can't imagine that anyone with an e-mail address has not received unsolicited e-mail or spam in one form or another. What do you do when you receive these types of e-mails. Do you delete them right away, respond to them informing repparttar 139551 sender you do not wish to receive them, or forward them to a friend whom you think might be interested inrepparttar 139552 information?

Whenrepparttar 139553 Internet as we know it was very young and most unsolicited e-mails where either by accident orrepparttar 139554 result of opt-in subscriptions, you could respond withrepparttar 139555 word "unsubscribe" inrepparttar 139556 reply subject and your name was taken offrepparttar 139557 list. That quickly changed once people found out how powerful a marketing tool e-mail was. Now, most ofrepparttar 139558 time you respond to unsolicited e-mails you are lettingrepparttar 139559 sender know that your e-mail address is active or alive. Instead of being taken offrepparttar 139560 list you are targeted more aggressively. The sender ofrepparttar 139561 e-mail may also sell your e-mail address to other e-marketers, substantially increasingrepparttar 139562 number of unsolicited e-mails your receive.
