sh*t list for domains (53 posts)

    That place is a breeding ground for sh*t list people.

    You know, I was discussing this with one of my partners the other day. We wonder what would happen if the very top level bandwidth providers started cutting off the networks from where spam (email, comments, whatever) and all this crap was coming from.

    Let's say the top level provider is "Fred, Inc.", and they sell access to "Barney, LLC" in whatever country. Well, Barney sub-leases bandwith to "The Sally Co.", and "The Sally Co." tends to have a lot of spam email generated from within their network. "Barney, LLC" overlooks this, as "The Sally Co." pays them a nice tidy sum for their use.

    However, after "Barney, LLC" ignores these complaints, they filter up to "Fred, Inc." In turn, "Fred, Inc." says OK, we'll get your attention "Barney, LLC", and shuts them off.

    Essentially, the top level puts the pressure on their clients to take care of business or else.

    I don't think it's realistic, but I bet it could work.

    its be cool, but there'll always be some place out there that doesnt care. then there'll be the people who claim they have some constitutional [insert document here] right to spam. i'm still not entirely sure how these people make money. i need someone to explain it to me like a 2nd grader. my little site just now got its first ranking on a real ranking site - how does screwing up my reputation with the search engine mafioso make them money? it might be a good idea. i maintain about 250 machines and server for a school - i've got space and bandwidth to burn. i wanna be rich too.

    Said it before, and I'll say it again.

    Who's neck should the noose be put around? Those exploiting the system, aka the spammers, or the idiots out there clicking on their damn messages?

    Hmmmm... me thinks we need to clean up the gene pool. Natural selection isn't fast enough.

    Luna, it's called a IDP and it's happened before. Just doesn't happen that often anymore because too many large companies are now involved. Any time you see Hotmail or GMail get blocked for example, it's always a "mistake" even if it's done for a reason.

    "wait up, you mean people actually click that crap?"

    A small number do, even accidental clicks are probably enough. The marketing ideas behind it is even 1% return is "good".

    Which is even more stupid.

    Only thing you can do is sit on those blogs and nuke them when they spam. either that or block them.

    Gotta admit I'm about to block gmail myself.

    I consider myself lucky. I can block all of those like mail.ru and sit back and relax. Benefits of a niche "American" topic I guess. :D

    Good idea. I picked up a *.us domain that I had planned on doing mu with. I may think of that. :)

    Yea...lucky here as well. I have a very specific target audience, so I've entered around 200 domains in the limit email registrations field and don't have to worry with blocking.

    May want to just go ahead and block:

    deny from 81.177.38.
    deny from 81.177.39.

    Big comment spam source as well.

    You know, I think I stuck those into apf the other day.

    Or something close to those.

    And we can add in 81.227.36.67 to that list. Getting hit hard by them.

    aside: What the hell is it with all these 81.* ip addresses?

    reedit: 81.227.36.155 as well. I just went ahead and blocked the whole class c.

    You may want to search as I also found previous accounts at those IP addresses.

    194.117.236.151 and 202.164.41.3 as well.

    edit: 203.87.191.114 (I should run through my registration logs more often.)

    and 63.217.30.178

    I'll add these:

    bodun1.org
    bodun2.org
    bodun3.org
    bodun4.org
    bodun5.org

    They're all hitting me here in Korea. More to come - or is this thread still alive, and additions wanted?

    Yes, any additions wanted, the same hit me too. By the way, Cburell, they left some splogs on your site, just saw your updated blog list.

    f*cking spammers. So, that felt a little bit better :)

    Thanks Bike :) I zapped them.

    Hi,

    I don't know if this may help, but I've made a .txt files with all domains listed in this thread, except those that were signaled as "main mail plateform". After deleting all the doublons, there are 165 domains name listed in here !

    You can download it here (french version of the article) and here (english version).

    You may wish to add some other domains, so just leave a comment here or on my site and I will update list !

    (My idea is to make an easy paste and copy list, as it's quite long to do it from the forum... But tell me if I go wrong)
