spammers

I've sent an email to thecheapestkitchensintheworld, and have asked them to stop spamming our site here in Canada. I don't know about you, but I am tired of this now, so have taken a pro-active approach
Will let you know if I get an answer

I hope that doesn't just end up with the site , and you being flooded with spam. Replying to those SOB's just confirms it is an active site and people view their ads. Often a second source of income for spammers is sharing confirmed active e-mail addresses and websites for others to spam. The best policy to deal with spam is to not respond to it , but simply delete it.

LOL, way ahead of you Dave. Used an obscure old business email address that is still active, and used the name Orchidguy.
I did check out this company, before placing the email to them, and it turns out, they are legit, but just bad advertising tactics.
