'[PICLIST] [pci]: Spam'

I had recieved solicitations
from Open system about a
compact pci, as most of the
people on this list.
I had asked them to remove me
from the list that seem to
have been mined from this
list.
Now I get the same stuff only
with the address I used to
send them the remove request.

How do you stop company's from
doing so?
Yes I can do a filter but I
really THEM to do the work.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Robertf

You could try reporting them to their service provider.

Well, here's what the deal is, open systems pci is an 'industry rag'
(trade journal, spamvertiser, etc) which other companies advertise in.  So
all you need to do is talk directly to the company that the letter is
advertising (such as Junga, who has hot swap pci stuff), and complain
loudly and long to them - They don't know that open systems is
spamming(but if enough people complain to them directly about it then
they'll get the idea), and when they find out they are likely to talk
loudly and long with open systems about it.

When I sent my letter to Junga I got a response about a week later from
open systems telling me they don't know how they got my name, but that
they were sure it came from a reputable source (shady explanation at
best), and they went on to say that Junga was not responsible for the
mailing, and would I please complain to open systems directly in the
future.

Of course, I won't.  The only way Open Systems will get the message that
they should not advertise this way, and that they should check their lists
carefully is if we complain to the people who give them money.  When we
do, they stop getting as much money.  They don't care about us, just their
money.

Ten loud people are heard more readily than ten thousand silent people.

If you paste the message complete with headers into http://www.spamcop.com it
intelligently parses the headers, traces their service providers (and those
of websites they advertise) and generates the relevant complaints
automatically.

I tried the above link but it does not work.  However, typing "spamcop"
into google led me to <http://www.spamcop.net> (note the .NET instead of
.COM).  Just passing it on to others who want to start taking a whack at spam.
