The World Wide Web has changed the face of society in a thousand ways small and large. There are those that spend their days writing, playing games, searching for the newest travel deals, and looking for the best tourist attraction. No longer do you pick up the phone to find data, no longer do you have to search the paper or bulletin boards for people to pay games with, now you step up to your desk and log onto your computer and then the Internet. It is all waiting for you there.
But guess what else is waiting there? Spammers! These people do not see you as friends, they only see you as a source of income. From Male enhancement to Canadian Pharmcies to everything in between the flow of spam is never ending.
To avoid being afflicted by lots and lots of Spam you need to protect you email address as if it was a prized possession. In fact these Spammers see your email as a prized possession too.
Once they have your email it’s like opening the flood gates to thousands of Spam messages. The more spam or junk you accept the more that will come in. Its like if you allow on person that is not a family member know your email address it seems like dozens then hundreds soon know your name and worse your email address.
If that was not enough a lot of popular domains have become the target for dozens of the more technically saavy junk email senders who have found the way to send to a domain without knowing the whole email address. That is not good for you. There are blocking lists and blocking programs that are available to help you with the constant attacks.
One of these is SpamCop Blocking List (SCBL). This list is a collection of IP address that have been reported for sending spam emails.
Once SpamCop has seen the IP address enough it is immediately blocked and then it keeps you from being affected.
There is also a bunch of software programs designed to help with Spam. Microsoft’s Outlook, a popular email client, has it’s own tools and many Anti-virus companies, such as McAffee have developed ways to help with Spam. With every new generation of Spammer created they find a way to get past the newest protection.
The fact is Spam is here to stay and it is only a matter of the technology getting better at protecting. The only way to stop spam forever is to legislate a way to punish those that send the spam so that it is no longer profitable to find a way to get their spam into your Email box. If that will ever happen, only time will tell. Either way you should protect youself with the best spam blocking software or services that you can find.
