Post Someone is signing me up for spam
So the other day i was looking for an apartment on craigslist. I only look in the By-Owner Only section because i hate scum bag realtors. Anyways, i'm searching through and keep opening postings by a realtor who has 1/2 fee apartments listed. it pissed me off so i emailed him and told him to stop posting in the By-Owner Only section. Today I am getting a ton of porn and other various newsletter sign ups on my email address. The only good thing is they have the IP address that is signing my email up http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/209.6.64.130. What can i do about this? Granted i could do it back to him, but i'm looking for something to end it, and not just emailing him to say stop, cause then he'd know it bothered me.

This thread, while very interesting to me, is pretty old now.
