List of Indian Spammers Durable Link to this BLOG
List of Indian Spammers

Spam is the unsolicted email messages sent by organizations to promote their own cause. Spammers are those who send them.

The Indian portal Rediff used to send me unsolicited email. But after I wrote to them that it shows their company in poor light, they stopped; but not to everyone as Madhu Menon points out. Apparently they do not have a delete mechanism to their email list management system.

SiliconIndia is another evil spammer. They add me to their mailing list without my permission, but to unsubscribe, apparently I have to double-opt-out -- first send a message saying I no longer want to receive messages, then confirm it via yet another message. Scumbags.

This Jain webmaster thinks I am interested in his spam and adds me to his mailing list on Yahoo! When I protest, he writes about how great are email lists to propagate Jainism. (Do you know what is common between Jain spam and porn spam? -- both feature naked people). I wrote to him that sending spam is a form of violence and hence a non-Jaina activity, but he doesn't listen and keeps sending his crappy Jain propaganda that I don't care about.

Oh there is this WebRishta. They built a list of all email addresses from our guestbook and started sending spam to our friends. I complained and got their website disabled, but they have other avatars (like rishtaa.com, and ValuePay.com). Beware of them.

Cross-tab -- "Cross Tab is India's first online Market Research agency". I hope they are the last. Mofos.

If you know of other spammers of Indian origin, let me know. Let us unmask/deface them with the hope that they will stop.
