    I'm not an aff so it wouldn't do me any good but I think it'd be useful to any aff who's considering bulk emailers - which are spammers, which aren't.

    They ALL say they're opt-in but my experience is there are very few who are telling the truth about that.

    Might save some aff from losing a big commission check for spamming if he had a list to check first.

    Agreed.

    Also a list of merchants who are fronts for spam brokers. That would help aff's from unwittingly promoting a site whose true business is the selling of email addresses. Also wouldn't hurt to list those which bundle parasiteware also.

    Haiko posted a list of *programs that carry* Parasiteware(TM) (am I supposed to or not supposed to say (TM)?) but it was in a thread somewhere so I have no idea where - I guess a search might find it, but it should be a "steady link" (if that makes sense, I may have just made up the term).

    I'd like a new section added on this and other spamming topics in "the Academy" under "Email Spamming and Spammers".

    I have seen several posts floating around on people having their email addresses ripped off their site by robots and used by spammers and now I'm looking for it. This is a topic many would greatly appreciate and benefit from.

    One other topic I'd suggest for the academy would be "Counters and Web tracking". It also has various posts in multiple places. A dedicated section for it might deserve consideration.

    Here is one thread:http://www.abestweb.com/cgi-b in/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=25&t=000068

    And here's a famous one:http://www.abestweb.com/cgi-bin/ ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=50&t=000002

    I would love to see a reference to spamming/spammers. It would be a shame to see someone new here get cheated or used some list broker, rubbing his hands together in a dark corner somewhere.
