    Really irritated at spam from Ken Reno
    I can't remember now what I did to get on this guy's email list. I think I was looking at some site building software or something and entered one of my real email addresses.

    His name is Ken Reno, aka Kenneth Reno.

    I've used the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of his emails. Does no good.

    I went to his "helpdesk" site and opened a ticket asking to be removed. Does no good.

    I finally, after repeated efforts to find a way to actually contact the guy, made a promise to him through his open "helpdesk" ticket: Mr. Reno, since you have repeatedly spammed me and refused to take my name off your mailing list, and since your "unsubscribe" link is a scam -- I'm going to let anyone I can know, via my website, via forum postings, what a little stinker you are!

    Consider yourself warned. And if you know Ken Reno -- or if you ARE Ken Reno -- maybe next time you'll behave more ethically and make your "unsubscribe" function one that truly works.

    Did a Google search on Kenneth Reno and it looks like you can't hurt his reputation as it's already been slammed. Did you think of going into cPanel and blocking his domain from sending emails?

    I believe I remember the name, but never had the unpleasant experience of getting on his list.
    Ken Reno...sounds like some flashy 80's cop name.

    I have multiple Gmail accounts for this very reason and have one I use just to sign up for newsletters. Never heard of this guy but they're a dime a dozen.

    Check his IP, find his host at domaintools.com & write to the abuse dept. about his email spam.

    They should have the option to unsubscribe, utilise it

    It is best if you take a minute to actually read a post before you add to it.

    Do you even bother to read the posts that you comment on?

    In Australia it's illegal to spam, it should be like that everywhere as I'm tired of getting spam like emails from affiliate managers in the USA.

    Ken Reno got hold of my email address as well. And like you, unsubscribe does not work

    I just don't open his emails

    As I said in my OP of this thread, I've tried the unsub link numerous times. I ALWAYS get this courteous little response that I've been unsubscribed.

    And I continue to get emails -- usually two or three the same day or next day after I "unsubscribe."

    I actually located the guy on that Warrior's Forum, although he hasn't posted there in more than a year. I tried sending him a PM there -- only to find that I've got to have a minimum of 50 posts on that forum to get PM privileges. (I have 0 posts there at this point and don't want to waste my time trying to get 50+.)

    I bet his system crawls thousands of sites for email addresses and when you click on "unsubscribe" you are really opting in to receive emails. This probably lets him know that the email address does exist and is working.

    Luckily I use gmail and just mark them spam.
