    I received a spam email today from a James E (noreply@XXXXXXXXXXXXX.com)with a full page creative from Stamps.com.

    Will whoever owns XXXXXXXXXXXX.com step up and take the whipping you deserve? All I can say is you are some kind of idiot to claim that the email address used (one that I put on to receive recipes from users) was part of any opt-in list. I alerted Stamps.com to your actions and hopefully your affilitation with them and any other respectable merchants will be terminated. You give a bad name to affiliates everywhere.

    How do you know it was from the owner of that site though? A spammer could put in any return email address.

    I agree with jimbo2002. I know I can use any email address and redirect to another.

    I suggest the spammer, as punishment, be assigned to clean up a hazardous waste area. No protective clothing, no gloves, no face masks. That is still better treatment than they deserve...

    I hate

    Punishing legitimate newsletter publishers for sending out mailings would more than likely be the result of this plan. The spammers would figure out a way to still do it.

    Thanks for the interesting replies. The merchant has somewhat addressed the situation and hopefully the spammer will clean up his/her act.
