Not sure if I should be posting names/companies etc but seriously...OK how many people here keep getting spammed by TrafficMagnet? I have tried ignoring them and I get SPAMMED. I have tried unsubscribing, and I get SPAMMED.
What happens is their robot visits your site, and you get an email like this:
The reason I am now thoroughly pissed off is because I got one email for each of my sites today. Spamming is one thing, but robotic spamming of this nature is even more annoying when all of my sites ARE listed with the major search engines.Hi
I visited www.mysite.net and noticed that you're not listed on some search engines! I think we can offer you a service which can help you increase traffic and the number of visitors to your website.
I would like to introduce you to TrafficMagnet.com. We offer a unique technology that will submit your website to over 300,000 search engines and directories every month.
You'll be surprised by the low cost, and by how effective this website promotion method can be.
To find out more about TrafficMagnet and the cost for submitting your website to over 300,000 search engines and directories, visit www.TrafficMagnet.com.
I would love to hear from you.

We honor all removal requests. Please click here to be removed from our mailing list.
So here is my plan... you don't have to own a website to do this, it's pretty simple. Simply copy and paste the message below and email it to Sarah_Williams@TrafficMagnet.com (or any other email addresses you can find on their website). You can send it once, or as I suggest at least fitty times.
Then see if she/they reply. We can win the fight!Hi
I visited www.TrafficMagnet.com, and noticed that you're not listed on some search engines! I also noticed that your site is in fact really ugly to look at and the words "Standards Compliant" are clearly lost on you. I think we can offer you a service which can help you sort out your online venture.
I would like to introduce you to several services. The first is http://validator.w3.org. They offer a unique service which ensures your code is even actually valid.
The second service is, http://www.websitesthatsuck.com. You'll be surprised by the low cost, and by how effective this website promotion method can be. I am sure if you submit to them, you'll have the number one spot instantly.
The third service is http://www.spamcop.com. You will be surprised at the number of service providers that get submitted to them, and find out what happens when you send unsolicited email to people who really have no interest in what you are offering.
Interested? I would love to hear from you.
I do have a quick question for you though. You offer a search engine optimisation service -- why then, when I click on http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...magnet&spell=1 which is a google search for those keywords AND a search within the results for your service are you NOT listed at the top? 9th place on a really specific search is really poor!

We don't need to honor removal requests because unlike you we don't purchase email addresses in a sad attempt to make our sad service better. We have working methods for increasing our profits.
