This email has been sent to "Stephen Kearon" <skearon at trainit.ie>, the
alleged writer of the attached Spam message; and copied to
info at trainit.ie. It has also been copied to CLUG (Cork Linux User Group)
to make sure that local Linux users are aware of the email policies at
trainit.ie. If they choose to propogate this message to other local UG's,
or the primary UG (ILUG), that is entirely their decision, but since I'm
not currently subbed to any of those lists, I have decided against it. If
they choose to advise their clients, friends and associates not to
consider trainit.ie as training provider, that's also their decision. I
*will* be sending my clients that information in my next scheduled
mailing, however. (That would be my OPT-IN mailing list.)
This is Spam. Unsolicited Commercial/Bulk Email. I didn't request it, I
didn't want it, and I certainly didn't want it twice. If trainit.ie knew
*anything* about Linux, they would know that Linux users hate spammers
with a passion. If I *ever* receive email from trainit.ie, or any
associated companies again, I will report it to your ISP, and their
upstream providers, and I will ask that any users on CLUG that received
the Spam message do the same. If the Spam continues, and no action is
taken, I will ask that trainit.ie be added to the MAPS (Mail Abuse
Prevention System LLC) RBL (Realtime Blackhole List)
<http://mail-abuse.org/rbl/>, and I believe that a fair number of LUG
users would support me in that.
In other words, remove *any* and *all* email addresses @iewebs.com from
your database immediately, and learn some bloody netiquette!
