How to be removed from mailing lists, telemarketing lists and email lists

Post by Ozzie Gontan » Tue, 09 Apr 2002 08:50:31


By being around a newsgroup that's harvested regularly by bots that
collect email addresses, I am spammed with a hundred or more emails a
day.  While I use my Eudora filter to take out as many of the email
spams as I can it is a daunting task as many of you know too well.

Here is one way that the DMA (Direct Marketing Association) has created
to assist.

Where to go to be removed from mailing lists, telemarketing lists and
email lists.

Removal via  online costs $5 to be removed from the mailing lists and
another $5 to be removed from the telemarketing lists.  For the E-mail
removal there is no fee and can be done on line.

To save $10 and be put on the removal database for mailing and
telemarketing by direct marketers:

You can fill in the mailing list and telemarketing list info and press
the "send by mail" button. You can print out the form which has a
transaction number, sign it and send it in for the removal from mailing
and telemarketing lists.  Your name, they state, will be removed for a
a period of 5 years.  The email database removal list is for 2 years.

Hi Ozzie, IMHO, DMA does not have control on telemarketers over the world
and other money making Internet sharks. Nothing prevent anybody from
scanning online things like newsgroup for email addresses. The only thing to
do is to hide/camouflage your reply address by changing the server portion
of your address. It is important to change the part of your address that is

source emailer and prevent the email from going on the network. If you
change your id part and not the server part, the email still travel on the
network and your service provider still gets the email and process it for
nothing. Also, I recommend using free email addresses like hotmail to use in
newsgroup instead the one gave to you by your service provider to connect to
the internet. If it get bad receiving junk mail, you can allways create
another address and camouflage it like I mention.

Best regards,
                    Daniel.

P.S.- Remove 'z' from 'zhotmail.com' to reply by email.

How to be removed from mailing lists, telemarketing lists and email lists

The best way to get off telemarketing lists is three sweet words: "Hold on
please."  If everyone did this it would end the calls.

In my state the phone company gave me a company or government agencys number
you can call, and they take you off of telemarketers lists, making it illegal
for them to call you. My TM calls went from about 10 or 12 a week, to 1 per
month now. Check with your phone company, mine is verizon.
