I hate spam, whether it’s in my inbox or on my blog. Spammers are the vain of the modern internet. I started to fight back a long time ago, I operate many different spamtraps and can usually figure out where exactly the address was gathered from. Today I received some spam from a company called Limestone Networks.
I have no prior business relationship with this “company” besides receiving massive amounts of spam from their crappy network. Unlike previous spam messages emitted from their network, this message was directly from Limestone Networks! It was most definitely scrapped from the web too, this email address is only used for tracking spam. Take a look:

The absolute BEST part of their stupid unsolicited spam email was the bottom part. Yeah, it’s not confidential assholes, I am not a client of yours, and never was. I am more than HAPPY to disseminate your spam to the rest of the world so everyone knows exactly the type of company they are dealing with.
Never do business with Limestone Networks, they have spammers for clients and are spammers themselves! DROP their network, it will save you some sanity! Oh and Felipe Fleury, whoever you are, you should change your title to Spam Specialist because that’s what you are. Dirt bag.
Oh and I look forward to the DMCA notice like Kris sent https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/5328/spammed-by-limestonenetworks, pretty sure my host won’t care, I consult for them and the network engineer is well aware of their spam sending ways too!
