Road Runner Update
So based on our spamming escapade a few weeks ago I received no response from road runner. Not a peep after they received hundreds and hundreds of emails. They obviously do not care. I've accepted the fact that taking on a corporate giant for their stupid problem usually won't get any results. Especially a company that has dickish policies that they don't take responsibility for.
I've also accepted the fact that some people will not be able to send emails to my HOME email and I inform them to write me at hotmail or whatever. Road Runner is a disgrace and their policy is a disgrace and it's worst experience I've ever had with a company except MCI. MCI lied to me. At least Road Runner doesn't lie. They tell me the truth about their not caring about their customers and refusal to fix this problem.
But recently I found out that Road Runner is now no longer sending a message to people alerting them that their email was blocked due to the spam protector. The bounce message. This mess:
This report relates to a message you sent with the following header fields: > > Return-path: <firstname.lastname@example.org> > Received: from tcp-daemon.mta11.srv.hcvlny.cv.net by mta11.srv.hcvlny.cv.net > (iPlanet Messaging Server 5.2 HotFix 1.16 (built May 14 2003)) > id <0HQN00I54W0RT5@mta11.srv.hcvlny.cv.net> > (original mail from email@example.com); Mon, > 29 Dec 2003 09:53:15 -0500 (EST) > Received: from sassy1 (ool-44c64f2a.dyn.optonline.net [184.108.40.206]) > by mta11.srv.hcvlny.cv.net > (iPlanet Messaging Server 5.2 HotFix 1.16 (built May 14 2003)) > with SMTP id <0HQN00H9CW0GDT@mta11.srv.hcvlny.cv.net> forxxx @nyc.rr.com; > Mon, 29 Dec 2003 09:53:15 -0500 (EST) > Date: Mon, 29 Dec 2003 09:52:56 -0500 > From: ALAN <firstname.lastname@example.org> > Subject: > To: 1Todd <email@example.com> > Reply-to: ALAN <firstname.lastname@example.org> > Message-id: <000501c3ce1b$72725440$2a4fc644@sassy1> > MIME-version: 1.0 > X-MIMEOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2727.1300 > X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2720.3000 > Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary="Boundary_(ID_/1laZrZJFCY5jizx81n8cw)" > X-Priority: 3 > X-MSMail-priority: Normal > > Your message cannot be delivered to the following recipients: > > Recipient address: email@example.com > Reason: Server rejected MAIL FROM address. > Diagnostic code: smtp;550 5.7.1 Mail Refused - 167.206.5 - See http://security.rr.com/mail_blocks.htm#security - 20031226 > Remote system: dns;nycmx01.mgw.rr.com (TCP|220.127.116.11|42471|18.104.22.168|25) (nycmx01.mgw.rr.com ESMTP Welcome to Road Runner.

So NOW people don't even know that their email was blocked for no reason. They assume it went through. I've tested this with a few new people I discovered are now blocked. They receive no bounce message and I do not receive their email.
So I've decided to respam Road Runner. But I'd like to spam them internally. If anyone knows anyone who can get me an email list from personnel within Road Runner (especially executives) I would like to spam the whole company. The goal is eventually I'll be identified as a spammer, so they add me to their spam blocker list, which in turn will add Road Runner itself to its own stupid spam block list, and then people within the company will not be able to receive emails from people within the company. On top of that they will be unaware that the emails weren't received because there's no more bounce message- which in turn will cripple the company due to a lack of communication.
That's the idea anyway. So if anyone can snag me an internal email list it would be appreciated. All on super complete confidentiality of course. And if you work within Road Runner do not send it from your corporate email address to be safe. If you prefer to fax it I can give you a fax #. If they want to shut off my service that's fine with me. It'll save me the hassle of canceling them --which I plan to do anyway after this anyway.
