Based on recent spam, it is becoming clear that ScienceDomain International Ltd, IK Press and ResearchPromotion.com are in fact one and the same.
Just a quick note to thank you all. Last year the daily figures were in the two million range for the IP DNSBL. We’re seeing slightly over double that these days. The domain name list is being queried even a little more than that, and the trend is clearly a growing one. Monthly totals are approximately 120M for both these days, in January and February.

Scientific Spam has had an IP in 220.127.116.11/28 listed since 20150710, and the rest since December 2015.
It has been reported on Twitter by many and gloated over by the anonymous dweebs opposing this work. No further notice has been seen yet. This is likely a cartooney that Dr Beall is taking very seriously – we hope the interruption is temporary only. In the meantime, the Internet Archive has snapshots of the site before the recent events, most recently from Dec 30, 2016.
We wish Dr Beall all the best and for the service to be restored as soon as possible.
Thank you to everybody querying the list.
We don’t know who you are. We have no way to find out, and no wish to, either. It is enough that it is happening. We’ll let the figures speak for themselves, and we thank you all for your support.
We’ll just let this one speak for itself.
Attention all cPanel users.
These posts are about ten years old, yet we still keep receiving boxtrapper spam.
We list it as spam. False accusations about forged sender addresses having sent spam are the only type of spam we list that isn’t Scientific Spam proper. This software (these types of software, including Spam Arrest, misconfigured amavisd-new, etc.) should simply not exist at all.
Endurance (webhostbox.net) did the right thing and suspended the domain names and all services for a variety of Annex Publishers domain names and websites so that IP addresses that had sent Annex Publishers spam could be delisted.
