Talk:Email bomb

I redirected this to mailbomb, where there's a more in-depth discussion of email bombs. However, since the two topics are actually quite different, it might make more sense to split that section off and bring it here. Joyous! | Talk 14:59, 21 May 2006 (UTC) I agree that the email bomb material on mailbomb should be moved here and this page un-redirected. However, I haven't a clue how to redirect, or unredirect even a Wiki page. So if that's something yuo could handle I'd be grateful. Tall Girl 01:33, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

List Linking[edit]

The article states that the validation email can be easily circumvented if "the perpetrator registers a new email account and sets it to automatically forward all mail to the victim, he or she can reply to the confirmation emails, and the list linking can proceed."

Yes, this might circumvent the registration process, but since now all the subscriptions come from one single email (the forwarding address), it makes blocking them even easier.

That paragraph should probably be removed, as it doesn't really make much sense. (talk) 18:38, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

I agree and will delete that sentence. Fmenczer (talk) 23:06, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
