Feedback: November 2004, Published: December 2004Not much in the way of feedback this month. This is no doubt due to the lack of attention that I have paid to the site in the last six months. I will endeavour to keep up with my mail now, so please send any comments/feedback etc via the webform at: http://www.pgts.com.au/page04.php
Australian Spam Legislation
From: Jeff Ryall Date: Fri, 12 Nov 2004 19:57:05 +1100 (EST) Lines: 23 Dear Webmaster, -- Message Follows -- Have read your artice about the ineffectiveness of anti-spam legislation, while writing a submission to the local Liberal Member of Federal Parliament. I met with him today to complain about its restrictiveness for small business, and the costs the Act places on us to no real benefit. -- Message Ends -- From: xxx.x.xxx.xx Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) Ed: I was being rather tardy with my emails when Jeff sent this mail. Eventually I sent him a reply: Sorry to take so long replying to this Jeff. But, I meant to ask whether your local member has followed up on this. e.g. any questions in parliment? Or maybe raising the issue with DCITA? Oh and you could mention that the amount of spam has not decreased by an iota. In fact if anything it has increased!
From: Marsha Date: Tue, 16 Nov 2004 05:42:00 +1100 (EST) Dear Webmaster, -- Message Follows -- I arrived at your web site while Googling "sqworm". I noticed in my stats report a hit on my site by "Sqworm/2.9.85-BETA (beta_release; 20011115-775; i686-pc-linux-gnu" and was curious as to what it is. Since you refer to this on your site... can you shed any light on the subject? It would be much appreciated. When replying, please put "sqworm" in subject line so my spam filter will not toss, thanks. -- Message Ends -- From: xx.xx.xxx.xx Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705)
