Why do I get spam?
08 Feb 2009 07:12 AM
Spam Robots or Spiders are programs that â€œcrawlâ€ the Internet, searching web pages for e-mail addresses or â€œmailtoâ€ tags. Once found, the e-mail addresses are added to private spam lists or even to bulk e-mail CDs. To prevent these SpamBots from ever finding your e-mail address, follow these tips:
Don't enter your e-mail address into guest books.
Don't signup for any newsletters or other offerings unless the company is one you know and trust.
Never respond to spam with a request to remove your name from their list.
