Spam/Emails bouncing
« on: September 22, 2010, 07:44:00 pm »
I'm going to leave this a sticky. PLEASE READ.

For some time we have been having a HUGE problem with spams/deceptive/fraudulent emails. I've reached my breaking point. Sometime in the next week I will be completely changing my email addresses on the site. When this becomes effective you will ONLY be able to send me email with a link off the website. No longer will I accept emails with random subjects from anyone. I am currently receiving well over 5000 spams a week right now and it's getting difficult to sort through this stuff...to the point where it's eating up a significant amount of time every day checking the junk box to make sure I don't lose something important. These people are getting VERY VERY sneaky in how they send this stuff and I am EXTREMELY concerned I am going to be accidentally infected. I have a program that has been successfully used for a few years but these guys are constantly finding ways around it by how they word/send these emails.

The email link will be very prominent on the site and I request that people start using that as soon as I get this up and running. After this is setup any emails sent to my current addresses are going to bounce and I will not ever see them. People that would like to submit pictures etc please use my plug forum and the file attachment feature there. It's free and simple to do.

I apologize for any inconvenience in advance. I don't want to do this but there's no other way to stop it. Unfortunately I've tried real time black hole lists which are very accurate but with people that have a different ip address assigned to them constantly it blocks legitimate emails too much.

If this doesn't stop the problem then I'm going to be instituting revolving email addresses every week and that sure will stop it on the spot.

Email has now been updated on the website and is now invisible to  robots/people on the site unless you are directly on a computer. The miracles of javascript.
I will continue to try and monitor the scott@saltybugger.com but this is subject to being shut down as I get more stuff converted.

My new email address is

var x="function f(x,y){var i,o=\"\",l=x.length;for(i=0;i<l;i++){y%=127;o+=St" +  "ring.fromCharCode(x.charCodeAt(i)^(y++));}return o;}f(\".<$(8$!!p7z+}. 6*y3" +
