... as LiveJournal does not seem to do anything about the spam being forwarded through my LJ email address, it might stir up things a bit by adding a rule to forward everything (all spam) to abuse@livejournal.com ... or any other LJ staff address... currently, LJ forwards several emails per day that is not even addressed to me... perhaps through BCC...

A few simple rules that would reduce the amount of spam could easily be applied;

  • check words in email body against wordlists, 3 or more hits - rule it as spam, bounce it... I wouldn't mind.</i>
  • Automagically strip off all HTML-formatting.

  • Install spambouncer or something similar (anything with realtime blacklists) to prevent known spammers from even get anything through...

  • Let paying users have some control over what gets forwarded... wanted: paranoia mode


  • ... I think this would interest the LJ staff as the amount of bandwidth is affected by this too.. thousands of spam emails that gets forwarded... technically it's abuse of LJ's in/outbound bandwidth...
