Bombarded with spam in my e-mail inbox yesterday. It’s nothing new, but what really ticks me off, is the amount of spam I get from businesses marketing to the chiropractic industry. I get x-ray spam, seminar spam, buy my pills spam, multi-level marketing nutritional products spam, make a million bucks conning selling patients into spinal decompression spam, and all sorts of other garbage.
Some company marketing digital x-ray systems spammed every e-mail account on Planet Chiropractic yesterday, and when I checked e-mail at my chiropractic office in LA, there was more spam from the same company. I know most of this is coming from people that scrape web sites for e-mail addresses, a pretty sleazy practice. I also know I can take greater efforts to protect my e-mail identities. Some of these e-mail addresses I’ve had for 10 years, so I don’t want to change them now. Just have to continue improving on blocking spam. Yesterday it was mentioned in a PC news article that one should never put their e-mail address inside the body of a post (this was related to classified ads). If you have to add your e-mail address there are numerous things you can do to at least slow down to the scraping process. Some people will do this … mike [at] planetc1.com … or this Mike [at] planetc1 DOT com … or even this Mike :: planetc1 :: com. Most people could figure that out. I’m sure many spammers will to.
