Every email that goes out includes a "Report Abuse" link that email recepients can click on and report the email as SPAM. This is done to pro-actively measure and find out, in advance, when a large percentage of users report emails coming from you as SPAM.
Whenever the respondents mark a survey invitation as spam our server takes a hit. Considerable amounts of blow might result in our servers getting blacklisted by the large ISPs. Since this is a huge business impact on us, we block the account in order to prevent further complaints from the recipients.
We do not take any action as long as your abuse reporting rate is within 10% of the threshold rate. The threshold is calcualted daily and is an average abuse reporting rate across all our clients. The threshold rate is not a fixed number but a moving average across all of our clients.
No - If you wish to send out email using our systems, it is mandatory that you abide by CAN-SPAM laws. As part of our effort to pro-actively monitor email abuse, we include a "Report Abuse" link with all emails that go out. We can thus find out automatically which users have an excessive complaint rate as compared to the rest.
No - It is illegal (CAN-SPAM Act 2003) to send out bulk email with incorrect or misleading identifying information. It is also against our Terms of Service.
No - To protect the anonymity and privacy of the recipients we will not divulge the identities of the users who report abuse.
