The websites themselves may be malware download sites. I have the same issue. I never had luck with women at all and I feel like I'm going to be single until I'm dead. I thought the reason why women don't reply back is that they don't like us and they're just playing with our emotion. I had one girl talk to me online, but unfortunately, she lives in Houston and chances of her seeing me was slim to none. I feel the same way.
Answer Save. If they still do not acknowledge you then report them to there host and to: www. From the resulting pulldown menu select Trash. Now your emails will go into the Trash folder in Local Folders. You can go one step further and have Thunderbird empty the Trash folder on exit. Click on server settings in the lefthand column. Check the box next to Empty Trash on Exit.
Those are settings for that individual account. If you have more than one account set up on Thunderbird, repeat those steps for each account. I feel your pain. For some reason, porn sites are not held accountable on honoring unsubscribe requests. I would like to see a supreme Court ruling against such practices with a hefty punitive damage slap on any sites doing so.
This may actually make a dent on the Federal budget deficit! Coincidence I think not! To me, it sounds like a coincidence because normally, porn spam would likely continue even after someone stops.
Once spammers have your address, they have no reason to stop just because you no longer visit porn sites. Another source of spam is posting your email on an open forum. I am always baffled by the number of people who state they a problem on a support forum and then request that then answer be emailed to them.
I am the Automation Coordinator for a public library. More to the point of the question, we look for someone who is obviously seeking out porn. I registered my [3-character] domain, and [3-character] e-mail address, in the mid-Nineties when spam was unheard of.
In view of this I registered a very long e-mail address a few years ago which attracts much less spam. Keep up the excellent work! Just take a name. Yahoo email has a very useful thing called Addressguard which allows you to create disposable email addresses which can be deleted whenever you have finished with them or whenever you start getting spam.
Great timing! My husband was on websites in Hawaii setting up our vacation, and he was using my e-mail address to confirm business transactions. The next day literally I started getting tons of porn spam to my e-mail address. A needless fight ensued.
Thx for the clarification. Hi leo! Keep up the good work. Then when YOU reply, they get your eMail address. In this respect, systems like Kijiji. Most major eMail services have addresses to do so, most notably Abuse Aim.
Jul 26, Dear Leo, so i got a spam message about some dating offer and i was like "okay thats obviously a spam" until i saw all the way down in small letters, writen with address of dating site, this "You opted into our newsletter through one of our interactive dating sites.". Sep 22, All email filters need some training, and it takes a while to build up a profile. This will be based, to some extent, on the emails you mark as spam. You should therefore keep reporting all the. Or to get random chat requests when you are web surfing? My boyfriend is getting emails from dating sites and says he has never been on them. And the random chat request popped up with a name and small photo while he was browsing the web last night. I'm not sure if these are just spam? But a chat request?
That will catch lesser offenders, like those who respond to every ad for something with some std reply and their phone and wait for you to call THEM. The worst offenders do not use the above mentioned services and that is where SpamCop. Com kicks in. Com figures out from where it came and to whom to report it. I know it works because SpamCop. This means that the spammers are getting axed and they are moving on to another ISP.
They even had his first and last names and offered him a monthly subscription. My boyfriend use to watch porn, we have had several discussions on how I dont care for it, he agreed that he would not do that any more, that was over a year ago, but it still gets sent to his email.
Is there a way we can stop it? Or try? I have responded to Craigslist personals a few years ago, but will receive random responses from time to time.
Jul 14, The other possibility in your situation might be that your boyfriend left his own phone somewhere, and you grabbed it, saw the dating spam, and were confused as to where it came from. This is a much more serious situation - but not why you might think. Your email (which was much more lengthy than I could share here) detailed a history of trust.
I saw the history on my boyfriends computer and it was to a porn sight. Lie, I assume? I have always blocked every e mail, my junk box is always full of them. Irritating but ignorable. My husband got a text message from flirt. He is usually on the net when everyone is asleep!
I found on my husbands messages from porn sites! How can they get his phone number? Spammers have programs which generate random email addresses and phone numbers and send out millions of messages.
When they hit a valid address or phone number, the message gets through. It will not since many are not in the US and not subject to US law. Actually the unsubscribe links in spam are an invitation to more spam. Thank you for this article! My girlfriend thought I was looking at porn sites because all of a sudden I started receiving a tonne of penis enlargement spam.
My e-mail address was relatively spam-free until a couple of months ago. Now I am getting junk every day and I have no idea why. My partner received an email with a link to a porn hook up site. The email was sent to and from the same email address? Every time he says his name to people, they have this insulting smile with their faces. We would like to know why people were so angry with him every time they received the email that comes from him.
Although he did not sent any of those emails. Can you help us please. My partner name is Rudolf Blaha and he was so devastated with those spam emails.
Spams ruined his name and his reputation. Every country he visited they already knows him and the spams. I have no idea how it so fast reached to other countries.
We really want to know.
Can you help us? Thank you. Hi my partner gets alot of spam thats cool, but i have been reading emails he has been getting saying thanks for the reply,when i look at the email there is an original message under the email that says it was sent from my partner then it shows what was said is this spam or him actually replying.
The spammers can and do fake things like that all the time. I get lots of spam which says things like re: our last conversation. It makes people more likely to read the message. My partner gets emails Ex: stacked blonde unlocked her profile for you to have full access to?
Is this spam does this mean he is on local hook up sites? They ALL lie about porn. Its not a fluke!
If it was the. Why only him? In other words if i visit a dating site named dateme. If it was true, what the author is trying to sell you, then you too wife, girlfriend, 8 year old child would too, be receiving the same types of spam. This means that you cannot use any one to be any kind of reliable indicator of the other. But I am deleting the other five comments that essentially say exactly the same thing, while railing against men in general.
Well I have never been to a porn site, I find porn to be repulsive and totally inappropriate, and I get tons of porn spam! All the information needed is on the article you commented on. In other words, there is little you can do but mark as spam, and delete.
Something like that. And that I am a member or have been at some point. Not the case.
Does Getting Porn Spam Mean You've Been Surfing Porn Sites?
It was very demeaning. I was not. But this just started approximately, Last month. A few months ago. I did receive an email from my deceased husband email. That was a trip!! Nothing sexual but I did open the email and also the one recently. But I did not respond. I did go to a relationship advice site. I did give my email and accept the newsletter.

I have deleted that. What is going on? All of that is typical of normal spam.
Feb 27, Your best first bet is to use the contact form on the site in question and ask for confirmation of removal. If you get no response and the spam keeps coming, then you can do a simple whois @ jankossencontemporary.com to find the sites information and . Dec 14, My husband has been receiving an overwhelming amount of spam emails in his junk box from senders like "Sexygirl", and the subject line is "Hairless teen". He receives emails from live girls on web cam and senders like " I like older men". Out of spam emails in his junk box, just about every other message is from a porn site like this or senders with . Jan 15, Interesting. I have two e-mail accounts. One of those accounts was mainly used as a way to snoop on the estranged husband's dating site profiles. That was a couple of years ago. And that account was used to enroll in several of the dating sites as part of that. That e-mail account gets loads of dating site spam.
Why is it only the men getting this? Ever wonder why programming is among the top paying jobs? Yours will be on the Black list too, sooner or later. Is this just coincidence or should I continue to wonder if the cat plays when the mouse is away?
I know, I did this to see if my husband was poor and innocent! Guess what the many, many sites I surfed that were just shopping, gossip, news, yeah you get some but nothing like you do when you search out sex and all the sin that tags behind it!
Go with common sense and your gut, ladies! My 85 year old mother gets tons of porn spam. I can assure you that she has not visited porn sites, or signed up for any newsletters. You do NOT need to sign up for porn sites to get porn spam. Do IM addresses from porn sites automatically add to your Contacts or does this mean they have been added manually by entering a chat room?
I know people that do porn, but NEVER give their eMail, and they get porn mail in gmail google hangouts, like: hey, wanna lick soon, click here to lick fresh!
There has been so many porn emails in my spam and I found out my husband has been watching porn video clips for years. He had been deleting it in his history so I never knew it until he forgot one and I saw it come up on his phone when I opened the browser. I checked his phone history about 3 weeks later and there was a porn site there. Is there any way I can find where he has been on his phone even if he deleted it in the history? Some of the emails even have it in the small, fine print at the bottom of the page.
A lot of them have similar wotding. I got yesterday, and that is no typo error!
Why do i keep getting dating site spam
Or maybe both! If I could get hold of the home address of the president of yahoo I would print it all off and post it to them marked : return to sender!
Why because the shyte was delivered to me by yahoo! Then they will learn Is there a safe way to sort email out? Stop commenting on things you have no idea about. It is the worst kind of gossip-mongering. If you can't keep quiet when you don't know the facts then give your computer away and never go near the internet again. Basically if one untrustworthy site gets your email, they can and usually will sell it to everyone.
It can come from looking at porn sites as well. A lot of them have viruses that can get in your computer and get some info like emails. All the spam emails are exactly that, Spam.
That folder is for untrustworthy senders that your email knows you do not know and do not expect anything from. They are just trying very hard to get your husband to come to the sites and waste money. I wouldn't worry. I doubt he cares about the spam emails in any way. Hope this helps. Curious as to why my spouse gets tons of porn related or sex chat site spam and I don't get one single spam like this only animal protection places abc mouse and other non explicit sources.
Dec 02, Unwanted email from trustworthy and well-known dating apps were likely requested at one point or another. While registering, you might have mindlessly checked the box that says you agree to the terms and conditions as well as the optional box dire. Mar 27, I have tried and tried to block all the sexual emails I get in my Junk folder the more I block the more I get. There is not a way to restrict them I have tried. Please I am so tired of them.

Best thing to do is chalk it up to your husband wanting you to see his new "moves". Or if your really curious, put one on of your liking and have it playing when he walks in the door along with your favorite dido or vibrator!!
