Several months ago I made the mistake of buying Kilowatter's AR handguard tool through a Shooters.com vendor. The tool is great, but now I'm getting spammed regularly from Shooters.com. What Shooters.com did was sell my email address to Sandybay.com who does nothing more than manage advertizing mailing lists - i.e. spam. Thinking that it might be legit, I tried the "unsubscribe" link a couple of times, but of course that doesn't work. In fact, I'm now getting spammed more frequently from Sandybay.com, confirming that they are indeed your typical spammers. Check them out [url=www.sandybay.com]here[/url]. If you are tired of getting spam from Shooters.com, forward the spam [b]with the headers intact[/b] to [b]abuse@navisite.com[/b] along with a polite note stating you don't like to get spammed by their account holder.

Bouncing email back to the spammer is a complete waste of time. First, chances are very good that the header is forged. Even if it gets back to the spammer, it merely confirms you have a live address and you get placed on more expensive mailing lists and will start getting more spam. What you want to do is complain to their host or provider for a violation of their Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). For instance, if navisite.com receives enough complaints they'll cancel the spammer's account, thereby shutting down the web page. And they hate it when that happens. [:D]

I use an email program called Spamkiller. Their website is www.spamkiller.com I have it set up so that I do not receive any spam, or at the most one or two a week if that. It really works and I like it.
