OT: allcoolmusic.com = SPAM

allcoolmusic.com is one of the biggest spam-disseminators in the world.
Supposedly located in the British Virgin Islands and often employing one
hypothetical "Jennifer Davis" as handle, it exists only to spread malware
and spam-promoted adware to unsuspecting POP email users invariably
receiving deceptive missives unsolicited. The dubious technique of "opting
out" merely suspends, not eliminates, the plague of their con and probably
provides excellent fodder for unauthorized lists sold to others of like
morality. This gang of unethical profiteers also maintains additional
domains in order to faciliate its dirty work, among which are:

allcoolmusic.com
musicmembermail.com
mymusicmail.com

....and probably others as well. Needless to say, you should block these
addresses or at least mark them as "spam" when receiving anything from
them.

Again supposedly, the "physical address" of this heinous company is:

iMP3Tunes
PO Box 1569 GT
George Town
Grand Cayman B.W.I.
Virgin Islands, British

but note the PO Box! I also take account of the title "iMP3Tunes" in my
own filtering mechanisms.

Your best bet is to report it to Spamhause or Sorbs. Also the
abuse newgroups would be a better place to make your post. This
newsgroup is mainly about html and web site's. The regualar's like
many newsgroups do not like off topic post's which I think this is,
intesting though it is.

Yes, you're right. I certainly don't advocate posting focused off-topic
subjects and rarely do it myself, but in this case I succombed to an
especially-aggravating incentive. If even one potential customer of that
spam-begetting operation reads the message and defers to his latent
wisdom, I've at least accomplished something beneficial.
