Email addresses in usenet newsgroups
Back in the day it was possible to get spammed by posting your email in usenet newsgroups.
I am trying to determine if that is still the case. I'm looking for a usenet server that will allow me to post a few messages to various usenet groups. I'd like to do some bulk posting if possible. I know I can register with Google and view/post to usenet. However I've tried that with no success. What I'd like to do is be able to post to a broad variety of newsgroups in a quick fashion.
I know that spammers used to use software that was written to search newsgroups for email addresses and harvest these addresses for their spam lists.
So that is my goal today.
If you know of any good services that might allow me to do some bulk posting please let me know!
I'll keep you posted of my results. I'm using a special email address strictly for this purpose. We'll be able to track what spam I get, if any from this method.
PS. Have a great holiday!
