Hi All,

Just for clarification, i want to reiterate that this is not an email sent by the casino - rather sent by an affiliate (as you stated).
So your complaint (question) is how he got your business email in the email lists he has.
And this is a question, we have no answer to as these are his lists, not ours.

As I told you in an email, though, we have asked the affiliate to remove your email from his lists - which he promptly did.

Thanks - Marcia

Hi Marcia,

Please ask whether or not this affiliate is using a spam list, or had KK opted in to his list. I'm guessing it's probably a list this affy had either purchased or scraped off of the web. If it's a spam list, he ought to be shut down. Letting these guys operate is unfair to webmasters who abide by "no spam" policies via proper opt-in. Casinomeister's newsletter is double opt in and I believe this is the standard.

Affiliate spam is still a massive problem for this industry and needs to be stopped.

This is exactly what I tried to explain to Marcia by e-mail.
a) It's definitely not a genuine list of opt-in e-mails (I have NEVER opted in to any list EVER).
b) The e-mail LOOKS like it has come direct from the casino - and deliberately so IMHO.

Both these things are a direct breach of JF's Anti-Spam Policies - but they seem to think that it is totally OK... :confused:
