    The problem with this? I DON'T EVEN RUN THE SITE THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. They have blatantly spidered a load of sites and ripped email addresses out.

    This is the email I sent them:

    DO NOT SEND ME THIS MESSAGE AGAIN.

    I have had this off you many times now, and you are BLATANTLY spamming/spidering sites looking for email addresses.

    I DO NOT EVEN RUN THIS SITE. Can I suggest you get your strategies and software working correctly before sending out this rubbish.

    DO NOT SEND ME ANYMORE OF THIS GARBAGE OR I WILL REPORT YOU FOR SPAM.
    And I casually ran it through SpamCop anyway.

    I swear to drunk I'm not God.

    Unsurprisingly enough, my email just got returned to me. Wow, I wasn't expecting that.
