Chung Hua University, Taiwan: spamming

It is with a heavy heart that we list an outbound mail server of a university. However, in the face of the response we received from the sender, there is no option to keeping both the sending IP address and domain name listed. We did not receive a reply to our comments to their comments.

We let the sender and the university know:

Dear Professor Hsu
Chung Hua University postmasters

Following the reception of unsolicited bulk email from your system to our spamtraps with the Subject mentioned above, we have listed and the IP address on our blacklist.

Seeing as our clientele and target audience consist almost exclusively of other universities around the world, this may have a very negative effect on your ability to communicate with your collaborators.

Kindly explain why you figured sending out spam was a good idea and whether you plan to continue doing so. If you agree that it was a bad idea and promise to discontinue the practice, we can remove the listing. We will of course monitor the situation and immediately notice if the promises are not true.

Best regards,

Professor Hsu responded promptly, which is to be commended. Unfortunately the nature of the response leaves a bit to be desired.

Our sincere apology for the inconvenience. Of course, we can remove your email from the mailing list.
Would you kindly let us know which email should be removed?
If members of your group want to be removed from this list, at the bottom of the email they received, there is a link for automatically unsubscribe.

Once again, apology for the unwanted email you received.

The email that we wish you to remove from your list is “every single email to which you do not have the owner’s explicit permission”.

That is, we want you to stop spamming.

> Would you kindly let us know which email should be removed?

Every single one but those who have explicitly contacted you and indicated they want to be on your list.

Kindly study

That is not an adequate response to the problem that is spamming.

It’s not enough. You need to stop the activity in the first place.

We take it that your intention is to continue spamming in general, and therefore we will keep the IP address and domain name listed. You are welcome to write back at any time if your circumstances should change. We do not like keeping universities listed, but a university that engages in spam is no different from any other spammer.
