|Q:||Who is Tom Saylor?|
Tom Saylor (a.k.a. Ursula Major) and his associates are currently one of
the most notorious Usenet (the newsgroups) spamming operations. It is
common for this organization to flood the adult newsgroups with ads for Mr.
Saylor's adult sites. Here is a list of some of Mr. Saylor's Adult web
Mr. Saylor's ads typically contain forged email addresses and/or forged domain names in the "From" line of his posts.
|Q:||Why are these people picking on me? I never did anything to them!|
Mr. Saylor and his associates haphazardly pick domain names and
usernames for their ads with out regard to the fact that they are
legitimate. Do not take it personally. Basically, they do not care
who they victimize. They have been doing this for quite a while now,
and there is no reason to believe that they will change this behavior.
That is why it is important for you to act.
|Q:||Is there any way to stop these people from violating my email address and/or domain name?|
Yes. Mr. Saylor receives his bandwidth connectivity from
Cavecreek Wholesale Internet Exchange (CWIE) LLC
in Phoenix, AZ. Cavecreek in turn, gets connectivity from
Level 3 Communications, Inc.
(LEVEL3.NET) in Broomfield, CO.
Cavecreek is notoriously unresponsive regarding complaints about its
customers who spam the newsgroups. However, Level 3's policy forbids its
customers from spamming and transmitting fraudulent information. Here is
an excerpt from their acceptable use policy
|Q:||Why should I bother sending a complaint?|
Having your email address and/or domain name forged is a serious
matter. Not only should you send a complaint to protect
yourself, you should send it to help put an end to this organization's
abuse and to protect others (many others) from becoming victims too.
