Newsgroup Announcements: E-Mail Harassment of BonaireTalk Users
E-Mail Harassment of BonaireTalk Users
Please be advised that we have received word from several of our users that an unscrupulous company is attempting to solicit them for "special" Bonaire vacations.
The messages come from firstname.lastname@example.org, and are promoting a site called www.bonbini.com, which is operated by Polaris Marketing. For more information on what various participants in BonaireTalk have to say about this organization, please see http://www.oldbonairetalk.com/newsgroup/messages/24/8191.html
Should you receive (or if you have received) a mail message from these people, we highly recommend that you cut and paste (and modify as appropriate), the text below, which is from a note we sent to these people's Internet Service Provider (send the message to email@example.com):
Dear Metrocast Abuse Center:
I'm one of the people getting harassed by e-mail from "firstname.lastname@example.org". A copy of the unsolicited and unwanted message I received from these people is below.
These people are clearly in violation of Sections 3 & 4 of the Electronics Communications Policy of your company's Acceptable Use Policy, as seen at http://www.metrocastonline.com/content/aup.htm, and I ask that you shut them down so that they cease harassing and spamming myself and other users of the BonaireTalk discussion group.
BonaireTalk is a forum for open communication, and having people like these abuse the Web site is reprehensible.
Should any of you get any other Bonaire-related spam which you believe is the result of your participation in BonaireTalk, please forward a copy with headers (you can get these in Outlook Express via File | Properties, and then cutting and pasting into the message you send out to complain).
