Are you still getting this spam? I suspect they finally listwashed me
over the past few days. I finally got a couple of human replies back
from someone saying something like "we passed the complaint to our
customer to take action against this spammer." Translation: "We know our
customer is the spammer himself and had him listwash you, but we won't
admit that to you."
Here are three addresses with the resolution team that should get a
human response for you:
resolutionteam at support.xohost.com, monica.henderson at xo.com,
jim.tobias at xo.com
Also a snippet of the e-mail from Monica Henderson:
"* The owner of the circuit has been contacted twice
regarding unsolicited messaging coming from their
XO circuit. Once previous to this escalation, and
the 2nd time regarding it.
* A sampling of complaints / evidence has been
the owner of the company for their direct
* Both times the company has taken the appropriate
according to our and their Terms of Service /
Use Policy, and has indicated their willingness to
enforce those policies in a responsible manner
all their clients.
* Through this effort at an educational
to violations of the XO AUP, whereby the customer
clients online behavior would be modified to
comply with the
AUP -- it may come to the point, within the next
the modification/adherence proves to be too much
the customer and XO.
Please feel free to continue to send any complaints
regarding this issue to myself
monica.henderson at xo.com and also to Jim Tobias
jim.tobias at xo.com."
