Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Another Swedish spammer: Mailphooner

Published: Thursday 2009-02-05.

It seems that there are more Swedish companies that have trawled the net for, or acquired lists with, Swedish e-mail addresses for the purpose of sending spam. Last time up was MailEasy, and now here is “MailPhooner” It is Västerås Airport and RyanAir that is advertising, and I could have understood if I was on some kind of list since I have flown from Västerås, but if that was the case, the e-mail should not have been sent to an e-mail address that I never register to any list, and definitely not in two copies.

Just to make sure, in case someone from MailPhooner would imagine that I am an evil person that is just out to discredit them without having a base to stand on, I will publish a copy of the spam here (the one that arrived to my standard address): The messages have been reported as abuse with the help of SpamCop, and reported to the Swedish Consumer Agency.

Nog för att flygplatsen till stor del finansieras med kommunala skattemedel, men inte visste jag att den var en sådan kommunal angelägenhet att deras anställda skulle använda e-postsvarsadresser som leder till kommunens servrar. Just detta mail tror jag inte att jag sett, trots att jag både bor och arbetar (*) i Västerås, har flugit med Ryan Air och inte har så extremt starka skräppostfilter.

(*) Faktiskt bara några kilometer från flygplatsen, men det är inte så relevant eftersom man sällan sticker direkt från jobbet på utlandsresa till Barcelona. Eventuellt ska jag dock dit i oktober, så om priset är rätt passar det ju bra.

Jag fick spam från ELON jag med, mailade en uppläxning till både ELON (dels säljarn i Örebro, dels centralt) och Mark and Hilton groups alla epostadresser jag kunde hitta. Inte mycket här i världen, men jag stal iallfall kanske ett par minuter av deras arbetstid. Enda sättet är hämnd...
