lol, I love the suggestions by the spam mailer for his sponsors regarding composing emails that won't get nailed by spam filters:
- Do not use themes in writing (headers) words such as EARN, OFFER, do not put a lot of exclamation marks and other (better do without them), just one!


Every one of the guy's suggestions is followed by an exclamation point. Like these:
- I am not responsible for your campaigns and sites sites that are sometimes nailed in the process of spam! Use anti-abuse hosting!
- I'm not offering anti-abuse hosting services!
- I don't offer recommendations for such services. I give only the services that spam!


It still hasn't occurred to any of them to just wash their lists of email addresses of people who have indicated they don't want spam.

After more than ten years of this crap you would assume that detail would have sunken in by now!

Danchev does great research. Awesome article.
