See: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2006/01/msg00068.html In short: the subscriber causing it is unknown. Someone is forwarding their list mail (not just from Debian; Googling for the Petsupermarket address shows a lot of annoyed mailing lists) to Petsupermarket, and their challenge-response spamming system wipes out all previous headers. Irrespective of their non-subscription status, Petsupermarket and UOL are abusing the network with their practices, and such abuse is rightly reported using Spamcop or similar. Of course, UOL, being the same incompetent ISP which set up the broken system, are unlikely to act on their own spam. As such, you may have more luck referring your complaints to Carlota de Paranaguá Moniz, Head of Investor Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org. As for convincing Petsupermarket itself to disable the abusive challenge-response system, getting in touch with them via e-mail seems unlikely to succeed. Perhaps one would have more success with one of the other methods they list on their web site, http://www.petsupermarket.com.br/, such as ICQ 147223608, MSN messenger email@example.com, or Skype petsuper or petsupermarket. -- Alex Nordstrom http://lx.n3.net/ Please do not CC me in followups; I am subscribed to debian-user.
