Retaliation for Antispam Success?

Blue Security's controversial method uses reverse spam, if you will, returning massive quantities of opt-out messages to companies it identifies as spammers.

Apparently the companies on the receiving end don't like it one bit.

I'm not a fan of Blue Secuirty's methods since I believe that two wrongs don't make a right. However, they obviously are having an impact in the spam wars. Maybe if the spammers are busy attacking Blue Security, they will leave the rest of us alone. (Okay, it was jut a thought, and not a real good one at that).

Thanks to Mike Iversen for the heads up on this one.

  1. QDN: The dishonor of Blue Security An interesting article about how this ends up affecting innocent bystanders (as I warn the kids to watch out for on bikes :) ), It strikes me as almost vigilante, in nature and that worries me.
