This is a triple cloaked affiliate for the premium Elegant Themes. It collects (confirms) your email address, via the "smtpmaster.com" domains (in order to subscribe you to yet more spam) and then continues on. I use OpenDNS, so at least one of the bad domains was blocked. I also use NoScript, so there's no telling what other spyware/malware is on a shady site like that.

This was one of the emails received due to a jvzoo.com hack. (In hindsight, another crappy site. Gee thanks! )

Another one of our registrar emails for the day. (I only check it weekly, and it 99.9999% crap.)

I have gotten so much SPAM from that site it isn't funny. I originally created an account with them for advertising VeeroTech but got fed up with the amount of junk they send from there. Unfortunately, I used my personal email address which I should not have done. No matter how many times you change the settings or unsubscribe etc, you STILL continue to get emails.

I also get tons of SPAM/Affiliate offers to our @veerotech emails from there as well - I assume people scraping emails from Warrior Forum - every junk email is related to something from that site. No spam from WHT, Reddit or any of the other forums I frequent. It's sad.

JVzoo is the weak link. All spam originates from there, and it's always "Warrior Forum type" junk. In other words, how to do "SEO" (not SEO), get rich quick, etc. So even if it was "legit" non-spamming businesses, the information would be crap. It's not WF directly, as far as I know.

It got into our main affiliate email account, as well as my personal account. So I keep adding rules for the former, and letting Yahoo take care of the latter. Almost all of it is from Romania, and I just keep blocking that country's /16s. There's zero legit traffic to this site from that country.

WF can be useful, but 99.999% is crap. I'm not exaggerating either -- literally 1 in ~10,000 posts is worthwhile. But I go for the 1. The whole place is almost pure spam from "marketers" (people with NO education/degree/experience in marketing) that couldn't sell food to a starving person. For example, what I find funny is how all the WordPress ebooks/tutorials always spend 90% of the time showing how to install it and plugins, and almost zero time talking about anything of value. So sad, so pathetic.

But I know you know all this.
