One mailing list hoster, ivillage.com, is still sending me loads of the unwanted mailing list spam and making it quite hard to get rid of it. They have 49 mailing lists, the retaliating spammer signed me up to about 41 of them, and to get rid of them I have to uncheck every one of them to unsubscribe. The 'support' link on the site let me fill in a form which got an autoreply pointing me to the unsubscribe form on the site. So more attempts to get through to them that they need to verify the addresses they get via the site and to get rid of all of their mail in one go. Reporting each and every one of their mails via spamcop has not made much of a difference yet. The acceptable use policy of their provider xo.com prohibits sending mail like this:A communication may be unsolicited if: (1) recipients' email addresses were not obtained through a personal or customer relationship between recipient and sender, (2) recipients did not affirmatively consent to receive communications from sender, or (3) recipients have opted out of receiving communications from sender when given notice of the opportunity to do so.I never confirmed receiving their mail, so they break rule 2.
