to get straight to the point- is there any way to get a person's ip from their sn over AIM without direct connecting, sending a file, etc. it's about those aim ads. ever got one of those? they're like "hey! come see my webcam at http://www.candidclicks.com/cgi-bin/blah?id=blahblahblah... and i'm getting pissed off. perhaps if i can report spam to their isp, they'll get a warning or someting along those lines, if not just lose their account.... (is there such a law that helps me out here against spam like this?) i suppose i can just make a fake link to trick them into going to a html page that'll catch their ip's... but i don't have such html skillz yet... so... besides learning and deceiving, is there an easier way?

nope, can't get their IP without directly connecting, or asking the person...

The web page is a good idea, and it wouldn't be hard at all to do it.

i never get that sort of spam unless i'm in a chat room. solution: stay out of the chat rooms, they are nothing but people advertising their porn sites anway.

People will send crap to random people, it happens on Yahoo more than AIM tho..

I don't see how you could convince someone to go to your website, since they usually send messages and don't look at any that they get. Can you use pop-ups in email?

you don't need any html skills. jus download a webserver and run it on ur computer, and when you get a spam message reply to it with a link to ur computer (http://whateveryouripis). if they click on it the server will have logged their IP. but you really can't do anything about the spam though. If somebody sends you a message saying "hey sexy!!" are you gonna sue them for sexual assult. It's a chat program and people use it to chat, and if somebody decides to write a text message with a link to it you really can't do nothing about that. Now, the leeto-buritto thing to do would be to hack the website they are promoting an deface it with something like "Stop with the Spam" or some shit.

If you're using aim, turn off the "allow people to search for me" through the "edit profile" option.

What I dont understand about spam is this. There are ways around getting around the spam laws by harvesting emails from say lists people subscibe to.

The idea is that if I create email lists where I get peoples permission to send them something, say initially an ezine that I can then share there info with someone. That is one example of a loop where people opt in to get some spam. Then of those peope I can email my message. Ok

Fine and dandy. I am wondering this. With spam being such a huge issue as it is. Do people still "play by the rules"? Or do people say screw the "opt in" example, andsimply purchase or harvest raw email addys and spam away?

I know I get so much spam I have no idea if I signed up for something or not. At least if someone spammed me there message and it wasnt off the wall I wouldn't know I didnt give my permission.

What do you guys think?

block all buddies not on list. kthx...problem solved. Kinda like the fcc on telemarketers asses, after a while the shit will find a new way to flow. Then someone will try to clog it again. The way to deal with all of this is? Take hackers out of the terrorist act, and put spammers/telemarketers in there. 80 year max jail terms for fuckin annoying me with your bullshit...heh...gah I don't wanna sound old.

most likely you've added info to the "allow users to search for me" when you've goen to edit your profile. go to edit your profile and be sure all screens are empty becides the profile screen, you should see things decrease sinde they can't search the aim directory for random users...

Hey Gaerisl,
I am receiving the exact same AIM SPAM from the same website, with much more crude wording, but I'd bet it's from the same Affiliate ID, Jenny. I actually emailed back and forth with Candid Publishing, the owners of the site out of Bedford, NH, and after I provided screen shots and the spammers AIM usernames they are refusing to take action because I won't provide MY screen names! I asked them why they need my SN's and they replied, "We want your screen name so that I can pesonally IM you to see if the problem has been resolved. Either you cooperate with us or we ignore you. It's that simple." And I'm thinking, right, so you can take that one SN out of your list, or what?
This company has also been involved in, and probably still is involved in CHILD PORNOGRAPHY, and I can show proof of that, too, although I admit the latest bombardment has not been linked to that area of their website. Oh, and the way they get away with it, they email and logout. Sometimes they're only online for 20 seconds at a time, sometimes it's a whole minute, but usually not more than that.
As far as resolution, the only things I can think of besides the defacing and all, which I unfortunately am not talented enough to accomplish, would be to contact the Bedford, NH Chamber of Commerce, the BBB, and the New York Times or AP with a story on 11 year olds being solicited to porno sites while they're trying to do their homework online. I'll gladly provide all the contact info I've collected on these spammers to anyone interested.

Email and logout, I meant IM and logout, probably switching screen names, but they've either got a team of them or some pretty sophisticated software. I've logged 4 screen names of AIM spammers in the last week alone.
