1. compile a list of sites that take spam reports, including your isp.
and report them.

it will be your small effort to get them blacklisted.

2. Maybe they're a group of Ethiopians ...
... who have millions of dollars in US banks, and need your assistance in accessing it - for which you will be financially rewarded.

13. excellent description of them! the fact they try and make money on the site is a great description
one of my former friends, who backed me and supported me emotionally (I'm gay), now reads that crap, and sent me a link accidentally (I was apparently on his group list still) from them, which made me sad, because I know he's drinking their koolaid and believing in their lies. he used to march in antiwar rallies and now's a right winger. depressing.

7. Did you ever vote in one of their 'online polls'? That gets you on their email list.
I did it once and started receiving their crap. If you look in their emails, there used to be a 'unscribe' link to get off their lists.

9. Newsmax = a right-wing alternative to the non-existant liberal media
Ann Coulter has a weekly column that appears there. 'Nuff said.

11. Newsmax is a REALLY awful Extreme RW "news" site.
It's like the Web version of Fox "new" only 10x further Right-wing. ("news" for the "short-bus" rider).

Seriously, the site almost in neo-Nazi terra-tory. :puke:

16. Do you know how to use "e-mail filtering" in your e-mail program?
If so, try looking for a "remove" check box at the bottom of one of the e-mails, and if that doesn't work, make a filter that sends anything from them either directly to the trash or to a special folder that you will need to dump a few times per week.

If you're still confused, post the question "how do I set up filters in my e-mail" in the "Computer Help and Support" Group here at DU, you'll most likely get 5 or 6 good responses tonight on how to do that. We have a lot of very smart people, here at DU, who know a lot about computers.

There is a guy here at work who thinks they are 'level and fair', but he is a repug...I did for a short time get that crap in my email box, I should learned the truth and ditch'em. CRAP, CRAP, CRAP...I suggest www.thenation.com or www.theprogressive.com

17. Most likely you made the honest mistake of
signing up there and using your real email address.

19. Here are a few articles on that outfit:
http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=NewsMax.com
and
http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=NewsMax.com
and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NewsMax

I too find it nauseating, but it's covered under the First Amendment. I could probably "out-left" about 3/4 on this board, but I still won't recommend doing anything further than asking that your name be removed. Don't even try to be snotty; just make sure that you include this in your request: http://www.thenation.com /
