please pass the cheese with this wine
with all you know about PC's, you can't just filter this out??? You sound so bitter all the time now, I really worry about you! I really do!
Filtering is not the issue
The spamming scum are filtered now, in fact the whole ignorant company's domain is blocked at the mail server.
I instructed them to cease all spamming activities, and they wrote saying they would do so. Empty words, just as I would expect from an unprincipled yank corporation, as the trash continue to spam as before in direct violation of my rights to the private and peaceful enjoyment of my mailbox.
THAT is the issue, and what the self-righteous goons of this community have to say about it is irrelevant and immaterial to the extent of the spammer's offence.
All You need, Dale.......
Is to worry about the big problems, The little ones mean nothing:( You, IMO get to worked up over things that don't even matter. If CNET is such a problem for you go someplace that doesn't give you the headaches.
BTW American Corporations are not the only spammers.
Re:All You need, Dale.......
Just a thought.
Some folks are not happy unless they have something to chew on.
You are suggesting that he remove that something.
That might make him very unhappy.
Dale is a smart guy and he "chooses" not to filter this stuff.
Perhaps there is a hidden reason behind that choice.
NT I agree, you hit the nail right on the head! :(
What I think happened... NOT spam
What I suspect...
Perhaps when you registered you did not remove the check marks at the bottom of the registratio page. There are a bunch of them.
As you already know how to contact CNet, contact them and ask how to edit out those check marks.
The emails I get from CNet have an "unsubsribe" option at the bottom..
THEY ARE NOT SPAM! By leaving the boxes checked, you gave permission.
Most sites I have seen have such boxes or yes and no asking about receiving mailings. I know I look at those I visit very carefully for them.
BTW, in cases of real spam, I find the best procedure of complaint is to contact the abuse section of my ISP. If I felt it necessary to complain to my government, the FTC would not be the agencyy I would choose.
Re:What I think happened... NOT spam
1. I did uncheck all boxes when I registered here, it is the very first thing I look for, as the assumed "right" to violate of my mailbox is something I have come to expect from yankee companies. Compare that to UK based services, including ZDnet UK, where you need to opt IN, not opt out, as they cannot assume any right to spam by law.
2. Since the mail address I use is "forbidden", I have no way of contacting Cnet, and cannot even log into my user preferences. This shows the hypocrisy of Cnet Corporation, blocking alleged spam itself while trashing my mailbox with their own.
3. I received an email from Cnet saying they had unsubscribed me from ALL mailings. The fact I still receive spam from them proves them as barefaced liars they really are, and how unfit to be trusted they are.
But hey, they're a yank company, so are without priniciples or honour, thus they are only living down to my expectations of the same.
So! I ask again..........
Why do you want to post on CNET boards if you hate Yanks so bad? Sheesh Dale I personally think all you want is something to gripe about!
There is a silver lining...
You have another item to add to your list of what you dislike about things American.
And this one, CNet, (as did ZDNet) provides you a platform on which to enumerate them.
God Bless America!
Re:Re:What I think happened... NOT spam
and your being the same inane person as usual
so how about this you dont come to our yankee forums and will stop spamming you:)
Yankee Doodle Dandy...
Glad he is not P.O. at Texans or good ole southern boys. He mentions "Yanks" in all his posts of this thread.
Re:this may not be the answer, but it is (was?) one of the problems
if you ever got to the "register page" by mistake, (and even if you 'backspaced'out of it) it automatically added your name to the cnet mailing list...
Re:Complaint about Cnet SPAM passed to FTC
Dale we all get unsolicited mail both "e" and snail. Set your filter as others have said. This goes much deeper than spam. You have an axe to grind, either with all "yanks" or what I don't know. If you can't see fit to forgive past arguments, stay away from the forum, if for no other reason than to protect your physical and mental health. I hope you will rethink your "get even at all costs" plan. You often have much to contribute and I would miss you if you leave but at the same time if this makes you this unhappy you need to get a different life.
Re:Re:Complaint about Cnet SPAM passed to FTC
Some cute little piece of American fluff gave him the toss, and he's been upset since with all Americans.
