I don't mind people quoting the newsletters or the web site on message boards, personal blogs, and newsgroups. However, I ask that anyone doing so link to the online version of whatever they're quoting. At the top of each section of the newsletter is a link to the permanent location of the newsletter with an anchor tag that brings the browser right to that section. Please link either to the page or to the specific anchor.
When linking to the newsletter, please use this format to make the address shorter: http://www.spywareinfo.net/july1,2003. For instance, to link to the section at http://www.spywareinfoforum.info/newsletter/archives/june-2003/24.php#links, you can type that as http://www.spywareinfo.net/june24,2003#links and my server will automagically forward you to right page and section. Leave off the #anchor to link to the top of the page.
I also ask that you quote no more than one section at the time. This is copyrighted material, and I do not authorize anyone to copy the entire newsletter anywhere. Link to the page instead. If I find an entire issue of my newsletter on your bulletin board, I will be contacting you about it, so save me the trouble and replace it with a link or remove it please.
If you want to republish something from SpywareInfo on your web site, please contact me for permission first. Emailed permission is required before any material from SpywareInfo can be republished elsewhere (message boards, personal blogs, newsgroups excluded).
If you link this site at Slashdot, for God's sake send me an email to warn me about it. The server can withstand a slashdotting, but I would like some warning so that I can disable some CPU-intensive features and redirect file downloads.
There really is no management. If you want off this list, click on the link all the way at the bottom of this newsletter. That will remove your address. If you want to change your subscribed address, unsubscribe the current address, then subscribe the new one.
If you're reading this online and want to get on the list, enter your address below and press the "Subscribe" button. You will receive emailed instructions for confirming your subscription request. Signing up an address that doesn't belong to you will result in me beating you with a tire iron.[No new subscriptions, newsletter is no longer published.]
Be aware that most web email services screw up the style sheet used for this newsletter, and that Hotmail strips it off entirely. Also be aware that this newsletter tends to set off spam filters. I will not modify it to pass those filters because the failure of someone else's software is not my problem. Check with your email provider to see if they filter your email. If they do, see if you can have them whitelist the newsletter. The address the newsletter comes from is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to reply to a newsletter, please keep the following in mind:
One, I get a godawful amount of email each day. On top of that is the spam I get which various people have been kind enough to sign me up for. For these reasons, I may or may not reply to your email depending on how grouchy I am when I read it. I also much prefer dealing with people at the message boards.
Two, if you do reply to this, please do not include the body of the newsletter itself, ie. please delete the newsletter contents before sending your reply. Violators will have their email address sold to lop.com (kidding).
Three, technical support is not provided through email. I used to do this, but I no longer can. Please use the message boards for all technical assistance. Thank you.
Please do not forward this newsletter to anyone. It is a large email full of HTML and advertisements. To some people, getting an email like this one forwarded to them would be considered spam. There is an anchor link at the top of each section which links directly to that item online. The newsletter itself will always be located at http://www.spywareinfo.net/.
