    Default Extracting The Urine or In Order?

    Not sure if this is classed as unethical as a rule but personally I thought it was extracting the urine.

    What you guys think?

    Hello pompeyrayuk,



    Here is the message sent by the contact form page Anonymous of "pokerpeople " - http://www.pomppoker.com.



    Message subject : [Contact] Paid Link-Advertising on your http://www.pomppoker.com



    Message content :



    Hi there,

    I have found that your site http://www.pomppoker.com is linking out to xxxxxx.com.
    Since I know xxxxxxx.com is a well-known link-buyer, I'm concluding that you have sold them the link place.
    Is that correct?

    We are link-sellers as well and Can you please reply and tell that you're interested?
    We could start with 5 contacts at a time.
    I could send you 5 e-mail addresses of people who have already bought links from our sites and you would then return the favor.
    What do you say?
    have a fairly big list of contacts of people who are buying links.

    Question:
    Would you like to swap some contact e-mail addresses?
    This way you and I both can get to new contacts interested in buying links (thus more $$ )


    Looking forward to read your answer!

    It's disgusting that our emails are being traded like this.

    This is just one way our email accounts are bing traded.

    I received the exact same message except with a different site we linked out to.

    I was not impressed.

    It is more than a simple "just delete the mail and move on" situation.

    This isn't a single spam, this is someone stating flat out they have no problems giving YOUR EMAIL out to others so they may also spam you, soliciti you and all done WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION.

    I am also interested in what OCR may have to say about this quote mentioning tier website. Surely without their permission?

    Yeah, I'd suggest a mod deletes the URL mentioned in the quote.

    I've been an active link seller for many years to various affiliates and casinos but I'd never, ever consider sharing my customers' details with anyone else. This is just not something you do if you have any respect whatsoever for your customers and their privacy. Even my XL sheets containing customers details are password protected so if my laptop was lost, nothing would be compromised.

    On the plus side, I have not received a similar request so I continue to be small fry Another blow to my self-esteem.

    ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED! And I don't even know this Vivian lady...

    Sometimes I wake up on Sundays and am so deeply disturbed about people's business practices. Not only in our industry - hey, the post has yet to track down a book I ordered online - but especially when it touches on our work.

    I expect an apology from the spammer, whom I emailed separately, and I hope this doesn't hurt our reputation as a leading portal, honest and decent throughout our dealings in the industry. Now back to my Sunday morning cup o' joe...

    Hi Ray,
    That's nice of you to post and I believe it a service to all of us in the business.
    But could you perhaps remove the mention of our website? I don't understand what you achieve by mentioning us, or mentioning the spammer's mentioning us, and would achieve if you had left that blank?
    It seems like your conveying the original email does us a disservice almost equal to that said email... Could you please edit us out?

    As for my response to the spammer's email, see in separate post.

    Thanks

    I want to publicly apologise for not making this post http://www.pokeraffiliatelistings.co...tml#post114378 here as well. It shows that I defended OCR by pointing out that we linked to each other and that the OCR link on my site wasnt purchased at all.

    Hopefully OCR you can see I have no wrong doing on my part in this matter

    I see. I could see before too, and stated clearly: this is a valuable and important post, and I have every reason to believe (and I have reason) that you are an honest person; our communications and history working together proves that much.
    However, to know that such info is being thrown around like that, to promote one's business, and possibly hurt another's, is sucky, yes.
    Just bothered that in the end, although meaning well, my site is related and tied to such a spammer, and to this thread in black on white URL... Wish it could be removed and I can be - again - an objective commentator on the forum.

    Do I make sense?

    Okay, the URL is still in the initial post. Has anyone PM'd a mod? It needs to be deleted - and now.
