Hello Bitcoin community,

If you received a "spam" email from our website on 6/20/11, please feel free to PM or email me.
We apologize; a "marketing professional" provider contacted us and sold us a bitcoin community distribution list.
After a section of the list was mailed, we very soon were alerted that this was not the case and immediately stopped.
Fortunately, only part of the list was emailed.

I have already spoke to some about the incident, but wanted to post for all the others I did not speak to.

If you were one of the unfortunate ones whom received an email, please email us back at support@gbvault.com and we would like to enter you into a small contest to win one of many prizes, ranging from thumb drives to power supplies to hard drives. Please include [Forum - Bitcoin.org] in the subject. Put your forum nickname (and your email address at the time) in the body of the email.

Once we complete the contest, we will post all of the winners and their corresponding prizes.

Thank you for understanding,
clint25n

The people on this forum are some of the most hateful I have seen anywhere. If this is the "bitcoin community", then bitcoin is doomed.

Two possibilities.

1. He knew he had a bunch of hacked emails to spam
2. He doesn't know who the fuck he's emailing

I don't care, it sits with all the other shit viruses and phishing emails I'm getting.

we're all a little stressed and thin-skinned at the moment, FreeMoney.

there is a possibility #3: that it's an on-the-level apology, with goods.  maybe not; sure.

but still, GBVAULT is a business that accepts Bitcoin - on its frontpage no less - and might be entitled to a bit of leeway...

FreeMoney, sorry you are getting hammered by spam probably mostly due to someone leaking that list.
We made a mistake and wanted to apologize and also pony up some prizes for people.
Wouldn't you want everyone that is spamming your email to do that? The difference is, we aren't intentionally spamming anyone.

Maybe if they were selling perfumed soaps or something, but come on, are you going to count on them for backups?

Maybe I'm over reacting, good luck, be careful with who you hire to represent you. And if you regret your choice maybe let us all know who it is so we can avoid them.

Granted it is something.

I don't hate you as much as the rest of them. I was about to PM jhfire an obscene rant earlier and decided it wasn't worth it and that maybe it wasn't even him, so I"m not just picking on you.

Just to point something out; the backups are encrypted on your own PC with up to 448-bit military level encryption and then uploaded. The only way to decrepit the data is with your encryption password (which resides on your PC). So essentially, all we are storing on our servers is data confetti.

And sorry about your spam issues. If you got something from us, we got your back. Enter the contest, odds are probably gonna be like 1:15.
