Furtopia SpamShield
« on: December 02, 2003, 05:41:10 pm »
Furtopia SpamShield service is now open!  Take a look: http://www.furtopia.org/spamshield_application.html  It allows members to use a furtopia.net e-mail address for public posting (webpages, newsgroups, etc) without suffering their unprotected private e-mail getting added to spammers lists.  Feel free to read up for details.

That many!? I thought one of my MyOwnEmail accounts was bad. I get spam, viruses and porn through that one so I abandoned it.

I'd think the only way you'd get porn spam is by being a member of an adult site... but then again i dunno. *pokes R_W* Dude our team on MC is doing really bad, we gotta get ppl to play/join the team.
Caution.. tis' here is a hyper active dragon ^_^.

You have been warned.

Much of the spam I get is Viagra sales and dumb things like that which I don't need. Porn spam is rare unless you're signed up on a porn e-mail list or something. Those folks will sell your address to anyone.

Never been on a porn list (to my knowldge) save maybe a few fur mailing lists.  But even before those fur lists we got lots of spam.  What they do is use bots to "spider" through your website gathering your e-mail addresses.  Then they flood those addresses with spam.

That's why SpamShield is a good idea.  You can put your SpamShield e-mail on your web page, news groups, etc and the spiders will harvest that instead of your personal unfiltered address.
