Alas, Mininova made a woopsie with their Content Distribution System (CDS) mailing a few days ago, that resulted in their putting their members e-mail addresses in the To box, instead of the BCC box. You can guess the result.
Yeppers, since then, I've received a ton of spam from some of their members that decided to make the most of Mininova's mistake. Spam for example, from "Porno Soundtracks", who thought the spam was so ridiculous, that they decided to join in themselves!;
And from UK based ibox-security.net, a company that any customer should think twice about using (they obviously couldn't give a crap aslong as they get the chance to make some cash);
And what pray tell, did the Mininova staff do to warn their members about spamming? They sent the following of course;
Which would be great - if it worked ....... alas it didn't, I've been receiving spam from their members since that e-mail, evidently I wasn't the only one. What did the Mininova staff do to enforce their first warning? Not much;
Ooooh - that'll tell 'em!
Everyone makes mistakes, we all know that, but letting their members get away with spamming, because of their mistake, IS something they can and should, be held accountable for.
