Please note that this website and its email address are used only in activities related to swing dancing in Boston, New England and around the country. This is under the control of only *one* person and is never used sending out spam, particularly for any commercial purposes.
This website is a not-for-profit activity maintained by an enthusiastic member of the dance community. There is no purpose to sending out spam since it'd just get this website in trouble.
If you are getting spam with "firstname.lastname@example.org" as the return address, that is because some spammer forged the return address so it wouldn't be traced back to them. This website has nothing to do with sending out spam.
Contact your Congressmen and government officials and urge them to pass *stronger* laws concerning spam.
When you think about it, having to deleted spam email takes you about 10 seconds per email. Some Monday mornings, I get a couple of thousand spam email at work (Thank God for SpamAssassin). Imagine taking the time to delete each one of those spam messages, multiply by the number of spam messages you get, and then multiply by the millions of people who get that same spam every day. I think we're talking about the theft of the equivalent of hundreds of thousand, if not millions, lives every day.
Imagine trying to come up with a punishment to deter sending out spam. What could possibly make someone think twice about being a spammer? I kinda like the idea of burning at the stake.
