Here’s a list of spammers’ websites. These are websites of antisocial people who’ve either sent me spam or paid someone else to send me spam. This includes selfish people who think online forums and contact forms are suitable places for their advertisments.

Don’t visit any of these sites. Many of them contain viruses and other malicious software. Others are scam sites linked to indentity fraud. Instead, add them to the list of blocked sites in your web browser or security software.

What else can I do about spam?

Here are just a few suggestions:

What’s wrong with spam?

Spam isn’t only offensive, it also costs legitimate businesses many millions of dollars a year. All unsolicited advertising is spam. It’s corporate graffiti, which is far more intrusive than the mindless scawls we see in the streets. It serves the greed of its perpetrators at the expense of your time and effort.

Deleting spam wastes your valuable time. It wastes the expensive time of legitimate businesses who could be using it to providing you with goods or services. Organisations have to consume time, money, human ingenuity and computing resources to devise and implement anti-spam measures. Anything you do to conteract spam is a benefit to all of us.
