  1. You don’t mention SpamCop (or maybe you do somewhere and I missed it). I find SpamCop really useful in driving down the volume of spam over time. I stopped using it for a couple of years and restarted when the sender of the same stuff you are getting flooded me with email spam/phishing. It’s definitely helping. It’s not perfect and I will usually find where shortlinks go to and report the destination to the host as part of the SpamCop report (user added report addresses)

    Thanks for posting your examples from the jerks behind the spam you get. It’s good to see these idiots are not just being fought off by me.

    Incidentally, when the images you post have been hosted with certain providers I will report them too. They Deere the images pretty quickly.
