Untitled[edit]

It has been suggested[1] that Spampoison is moved and redirected to Spamtrap. However, this moved content was deleted from Spamtrap. I reverted the deletion and suggest editing without loosing information. Moreover, Blue Frog links to "Spampoison (in: Spamtrap)". Shall we delete Spampoison from here?

Yes. Attempting to poision spammer mailing lists and collecting samples of spam are completely different. Spampoison is definitely not a spamtrap. Bitserve — Preceding undated comment added by Bitserve (talkcontribs) 20:39, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Reverted, but suggest another action[edit]

I've reverted the page to the state in which the discussion about SpamPoison is still in there. While I agree that this does NOT really belong here, because a list poisoning system is NOT a spam trap, the problem is that SpamPoison redirects here.

In it's previous state, someone searching for SpamPoison would be redirected here, but find no information at all about SpamPoison.

I suggest that the redirect is removed; that the discussion about SpamPoison is place in a separate article "SpamPoison"; that if this is done, the article is reverted to the state it was in before I made today's reversion. --217.140.2.129 15:40, 26 June 2006 (UTC) SausMeester

Perhaps you could create a definition for list poisoning as an anti-spam measure. (Nevermind, I did it.) -Bitserve 16:10 June 26, 2006 (UTC)


Should a link to spamd be included here as it is one of the few programs that provide spamtraps (greytraps) as mentioned in this article [2]? -Chris —Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.173.181.120 (talk) 06:05, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
