Oh look, the king of spam sales is back with another fake posting. Not that
he will ever read this.
Here's an example of Remo's mastery of the English language, taken from his
"Ross must find this mistery girl, save her from
the perils that threaten her life and convince
her she is his destiny."
"Mistery", Remo? So, she's a girl that works in a place that mists things
for a living, is that what that is? ;-)
Don't reward spammers by buying their products. Just say No to Remo.
I tried to complain to this guy's puplisher, but apparently it's a
Publish on Demand deal - so he's the one who responded. He threatened
me with the following:
"You better withdraw from your indignant posts at once.
I will not tolerate this any longer. This is the second time you have
It better stop at once."
I only wrote one email to who I thought was his publisher. If anyone
knows the best way to get this guy to stop, his "real" email is:
File a complaint with email@example.com (Remo's ISP), firstname.lastname@example.org
(Remo's SPAM portal), and email@example.com (where Remo's illiterate work
is displayed and hawked) . Include a copy of the message headers. If that
doesn't stop him from posting SPAM in future, you might consider
"mail-bombing" him with tens of thousands of email complaints, or sending
him a virus. The message headers followed by the original message, which you
should include with your complaint, are reproduced below for your

I might add that you shouldn't propagate this sort of rubbish by simply
hitting "Reply Group" and flaming him. The original message was a blatant
troll, and crossposted to several other newsgroups - all of which received
your reply as well, which only serves the troll's purpose.
Best is to (a) first, reply to sender with a warning. (b) If that doesn't
stop him, report the abuse to his ISP, and (c) Don't respond publicly via
"Reply Group" - even if you excise all the crossposted addresses. That just
clutters up our newsgroup further and feeds the troll.
