Received spam email from a company calling itself barginkiwi, it is very
unusual for me to receive spam so I would like to know how they got my email
address, I am with clearnet. Anyhow don't buy from these spamming bastards.

Last time I got spam from them they said that they got it from some "find
your old school mates" website, but, well, they had sent it to
http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed) which only gets used for one thing, and Im pretty sure you
can guess what that it.

I ain't signed up with old school mates or anyone else, I am very careful
who I give my email address to which is why I almost get no spam, it is a
very rare thing for me to get it which is why I am curious as to how these
bastards got through, although I don't plan on wasting a lot of time to find
out but I certainly would not deal with scum like this by buying anything
from them.

When it happened last time, I rang them and abused their "Managing Director"
they had his ddi listed on the website, and he was rather surprised to hear
it... that was the last one I received from them.

Lay a complaint with clear, if they get enough they will shut them
down.

Exactly same thing happened to me. I got one today from them to an address
which gets zero spam. This is the first one I've got. How on earth are they
getting my address.

There should be a blacklist page for NZ sites which are kicked off
ISPs for spammin, so that other ISPs can reference it before signing
up a company that has spammed in the past.

Yes there should ... but then each ISP couldn't get their money out of
them for a while could they ?

Forgive the cynicism ... but if we really thought that sort of thing
was important, wouldn't we have the no-call list like the US ?
Seems to me we've done a whole lot of careful nothing about this
issue and many related ones to date.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to
think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyones fault.
If it was Us, what did that make Me ? After all, Im one of Us. I must be.
Ive certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No-one ever thinks
of themselves as one of Them. Were always one of Us. Its Them that do
the bad things. <=> Terry Pratchett. Jingo.
