A blog entry on Nobleresearch.org (predatory publisher recognized by the Beall’s List for three years already) was prompted by a comment on our “who are these people” page by Aleksandrs V, representative of the Latvian ESP Mailigen.com who are currently providing services to this spammer.
Somebody else beat us to blogging about it, with far more effect than our puny little efforts.
This spammer has multiple IPs in 220.127.116.11/24. In addition, they rent services under a variety of names from Salesforce Marketing Cloud (ExactTarget), and have their own dedicated block from an Irish provider.
Needed a separate headline, but all is documented in the earlier European Colorectal Congress 2015 post. The AGB, specifically Section 8, 3.3.a, 3.4 and 3.6, are not worth the toilet roll they have been printed on.

The address list used by Kenes Group has all the hallmarks of being derived from the PubMed.
We’ve been watching Aviva Systems Biology (avivasb.com, avivasysbio.com) spam for longer than the SciSpam DNSBL has even existed. Up until recently, they were doing so exclusively from their own network, but their recent choice to hire what we think ought to be a whitehat ESP to do this for them prompted us to blog about it.
Last week, a Robert S. Siegel (profile on Uni website) sent out Scientific Spam through the ESP Constant Contact, asking recipients to Join [Him] at GW’s Hematology & Medical Oncology Best Practices.
Following Benchmark Email’s refusal to terminate the scientific spammer ibiotool.com / biotool.com, Scientific Spam have decided to create an escalation listing a week or two ago.
