    Default 'Seal Of Approval' member has been spamming all of my emails for years!

    I wish to make a formal complaint against slots4play (certify.gpwa.org/verify/slots4play.com/)

    This person has been spamming all 3 of my email accounts for more than 5 years.

    Although I have attempted to unsubscribe numerous times, reported the spam via SpamCop hundreds of times, and contacted as many affiliate programs as I could trying to get it to stop, all has failed.

    Hi Roanan,

    if you look at tehsik's past, then your incident is no wonder and for sure no isolated case.
    He really does not care a lot about some standards.
    So spam is his smallest move.
    He loved also to defend and to cooperate with proven criminals.

    Proof: https://www.gpwa.org/forum/leopolds-...tml#post819088

    Only public pressure here stopped this, not because it was his wish.

    Leopold

    you have the option to unsubscribe from my list, why you just didn't do it by now ? amazing people lol ...

    If you're not doing this then expect to get more mails, all users have this option , i am actually forced to have unsubscribed button onto the mailers since i don't use a cheap server , so follow the links or pm me with ur details via gpwa to remove u ..

    thanks zeitung for being a hater lol , i know u hate me because we had that argue about europartners, but you are right ... i don't give a *** about u and ur BS... and i will not play ur silly games...

    How did the OP end up on your "list"?

    The email does have a link - but the OP states he's tried many times without success.
    That's a disconnect that suggests a tech failure.

    I wonder if there is a problem with the unsubscribe link not functioning? Have you tested it recently?

    How are folks getting opted in to start with?

    The OP clearly stated that multiple email accounts were receiving the mails, so how is the same person with multiple email addresses getting opted in to the same mailing lists?

    Whether a list has simple opt out procedures or not, if the emails were opted in without the recipients request, it is still considered spam.

    You failed to address the concerns of a member of the Security/Membership Team. I'd like to hear the answers also.

    universal4 ... security team
    Redbush45 ... experienced forum member

    Original quote: "I don't have to answer to both of you"

    Leads to the question: "I don't have to answer to [security team] explaining my spam and possibly abuse of GPWA seal"?

    The temporary mask is fallen.
    The original tehsik is back.
    Next level would be personal insults (as usual)?

    Just quoting without any comment for an overall picture:

    first of all Leopold go FK yourself hater. It seems that you have nothing to do at home on a daily basis and brag around like a cow ... I wonder if GPWA pays you for your posts lol.
    2ndly people should proper look and then ask the question (available to the security team too) , and yes I answer whenever I want and if I want too.

    I will remove the seal anyway ... it doesn't help me at all lol ... I've added there cause it looks good, but no worries i can easily replace it haha.
