This is a question for anti spammer experts.
My spam mail has finally become a problem to the extent that I want to do something about it.
While trying to unsubscribe from a few places that I had actually signed up for ( yeah, I know! ) I was somehow redirected to a site which is called UNSUBSCRIBE.COM or similar name. The URl is : http://www.un-sub.net/?link=&clicktrade=
What they have written on their web site is brief and limited but it sounds like it is a real anti spam attempt.
I have emailed them for more info though and they have failed to respond which makes me immediately suspicious as does their URL. They also don't have any help on " how to " issues on their site. Could be that is because they are new and understaffed, who knows.
I don't want to slur any genuine attempt to stop spam but equally, if they are not for real, I want to make others aware of it
So my question is in two parts :
. Are they for real and do they really help, or are they just another way for dumbos like me to actually give away live email addresses, and
. What is the best site, if any, that actually does what this site says it does.
My points will be awarded to the first answer that can resolve both of these questions. I'm willing to award nearly all my points to get expert help on this. I won't do this immediately though as the best answer may not be the first that sounds right. Answer 3,4 or 5 may give the best overall reply/answer. So I'll wait about 1 week as a balance between speedy awarding of points and the best info. I won't let it hang for eons of time as some questions seem to.
I do not want any advice as to how to stop spam as I do the right thing. I have a real email address for real business and personal matters and never use this for subscribing, entering competitions, answering surveys etc.
I use several hotmail accounts for comps, surveys and so on where my interest has been attracted.
I use all the free hotmail facilities for sorting and deleting junk mail.
I use outlook express to block etc where needed.
I have several free programs which will filter junk mail from real addresses if needed.
Thanks to any who respond.
