SMI Conferences: Graduating from Scientific Spam to just Spam

Scientific Spam has had an IP in listed since 20150710, and the rest since December 2015.

What happened to Scholarly Open Access?

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.

Challenge/response backscatter is spam in 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.

(RESOLVED) Annex Publishing Group

Endurance ( 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.

Thank you.
