SSDNodes Spammers 2021-02-03


A long time ago [digitally speaking] I rented some server resources from SSDNodes. Ultimately it didn't work out so well and I dumped them. That doesn't seem to have stopped them from emailing me though.

Almost four years of not accepting mail from these guys and they just keep sending. And of course they push their spam out through mailgun, an organization specifically intended to maximize spam in everyone's mailbox. Go on, use your favourite search engine to look for "mailgun spam" and see what you get. They're not quite as sleazy as bitcoin masturbation extortion spammers but they are pretty close. Now some might say I should just hit the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any SSDNodes message... I would say that SSDNodes should not have signed me up for any mailing list without asking me first. Perhaps a subtle distinction, but the difference is that if everyone took the second approach then nobody would have to spend any minutes of their day filtering through crap they don't want. Every day. The idea that buying any product or contacting a company for any reason constitutes consent to be on any mailing list they may have is a dick move.

shat I hate spammers.
