"Why" or "Why Not" a poster page??
-A-(The poster page is help control of spam email.)
- You have probably seen an increase in the aARunt of "junk mail" which shows up in your email box.
The activities of a small number of people are becoming a bigger problem for the Internet.
I have been actively engaged in fight to control of spam email.
- If you have had internet access for very long, you know that it is a very bad idea to leave your email
address on message boards, newsgroup postings, and web sites. Why? Because web crawler robots (spambots)
controlled by spammers will detect the address on the web page or newsgroup posting and add it to their database.
The use of these email harvesting spambots has made it very difficult for web sites to conduct business,
particularly for those who must publish a contact address for their site visitors. According to the FTC,
the majority of email addresses posted to web sites are harvested by spammers.
-B- (If You Change your Email Address)
- If you change your e-mail address I can change it without checking all of the web pages on a site.
One of my WebSites has over 1000 pages/files. If you send 10 items to post and I didn`t have a poster page
I would have to search for your e-mail address to change it
-C-(If you don`t have A Poster #,)
- This is the Poster page link for Lauderdale County please check to see if you are listed
on this page and send me your poster -#- with the items to post to the Lauderdale County site
I will send you one when the information is posted.)
-D-(Sample Email That I Send Out After Post)
~~~~~~Start of E-mail ~~~~~~
~~~~~~End of E-mail ~~~~~~
- I have your items posted to Lauderdale Co Web site at
NOTE ----- I have posted your information on the Lauderdale Co page at
NOTE On this site you are listed as POSTER #-?? on this site. I have several Co
sites that I host.
If you post to other County Sites you will have a different poster # for each sites.
I when you send information to be posted to a site, it will help me if you let me know
the county and your poster #
I do this to keep people from harvesting your email address and using it to spam other sites.
This is ARre work for me, but I don`t like spammers.
PS I got it posted Please take a look at it and let me know if it is ok.
