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.

No-one wants spam

Published: Monday 2011-09-05.

Daniel Stenberg writes in his blog about the Mailcom.se spam company that market themselves with having a list of verified opt-in addresses for e-mail marketing (that is, addresses to people who want to receive ads). The only problem is that such a list does not exist, and if it would have existed, I would not be on it, and I am. I have received spam from several of the companies that use the Mailcom list, among others Autosafe, who seem to be in the illegal insurance business, Esoc, which in its turn is a spam company, Familjefilm, who I do not know what they do since their e-mail was broken, and Personalrabatten, which also was broken, but I can guess what they are doing.

Hehe, jag fick precis nyss SEO-spam från en "Peter Karlsson". Jag har lärt mig att de namn som anges i utskicken brukar vara påhittade, samt att du numera inte heter Karlsson så därför är du väl oskyldig till just detta utskick... ;-)
