I could have thought of more creative ways to do this but this is what we saw... Since were getting an influx of mail from upset individuals asking why CompuServe was the host of all this spam. After we found out what Cyberpromo was up to, we asked for cooperation from Sprint to pull the plug. At this time (and to my knowledge), CompuServe has not yet made an effort to engage in any legal action. I am unable to comment on anything else at this time. Todd R.
