    As reported by new website Mainsleaze.com:

    PositivePrint: Emailing a Spamtrap

    PositivePrint, an Internet-based print house, is sending bulk email to a spamtrap via ESP Constant Contact. The spamtrap is a long-closed email address that has not been live for years, and that rejected email for over twelve consecutive months in the interim before being re-enabled. It should not receive any bulk email any longer.

    Faithful America: Mailing a Long-Closed Email Address

    Faithful America, an organization of religious people who support progressive causes, is spamming an email address that was turned into a spamtrap about a year ago after rejecting email at SMTP time for over eighteen months. Their ESP is SalsaLabs, aka Wired for Change.

    DCCC: Mailing Long-Closed Email Addresses

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), an organization affiliated with the U.S. Democratic political party, is spamming email addresses that have been closed for years, and in the interim bounced email at SMTP time with a 500-level rejection for over twelve consecutive months. In other words, these email addresses are spamtraps. If the DCCC continues to send bulk email to them in the quantities that I am seeing, they are likely to end up in trouble with anti-spam blacklists.

    LinkedIn: Pestering Spamtraps with Invitation Reminders

    Social networking site LinkedIn is sending invitations to join both to email addresses that never existed and email addresses that might have existed many years ago but not in the past few years. LinkedIn does not appear to do any vetting of email addresses that its users provide to it, leading it to send invitation emails to many spamtraps on a regular basis. It then sends reminders about email that was unsolicited in the first place.

    If you're thinking "I don't feel so bad anymore" is that a good thing or bad thing?

    I am surprised Obama is not on this list. DCCC would be probably trading lists with his political operation.

    If the Haus went after "legitimate" groups like this they know they would be burned at the stake.

    I must say, they are the most abusive, at least were - they have cleaned up there act within the last 6 months considerably. I wonder if gmail's circle will get clouded too with circle requests? Naaa...
