All Email Addresses
for General Public Cease Working
January 1, 2006
Effective immediately, Bravo Technology Center no longer accepts unsolicited
email from automated
senders or general
public. As part of our comprehensive anti-SPAM
initiatives, we removed all email links from all 21 of our own web
sites and replaced them with links to contact form. All previously
published email addresses for public
use, such as:
←illustrative purposes only - NOT WORKING
will now cease
working. Senders to the above 2 previously
published addresses will receive an automated notice directing them to
use our new Unified Message Center.
For general inquiries, comments and suggestions,
or to report a technical problem, submit a message via the contact form
at the new Unified Message Center for all our operations.
Use our dropbox
service for submitting files.
Active clients and vendors may continue
to correspond via appropriate email addresses given out
privately. Those are completely not affected.
Note: This practice is
consistent with all major corporations with the means and knowledge of
an IT department. This "ban" does not affect intranet and extranet
sites, such as our Sharepoint Portal and
DGY Blog. Pertinent email addresses continue to be posted
Since mid-2005, spammers have drastically stepped
up their efforts in scouring the web and public record databases for
email address to launch attack against. Publicly posted email address
on web sites, and listings in whois databases are
the top of the list.
Our use of a form-based message system for
general inquires solves the problem elegantly and provide much better
control. We may implement human-robot test via graphically
rendered text in the future if necessary. The unified message
center for all 21 of our web sites also streamline our processes and
enable us to provide more efficient service.
History of Bravo Anti-SPAM Initiatives
we had been conducting seminars on PROACTIVE Proper Email Management,
Policies and Strategies. The emphasis was on
holistic spam avoidance through user
behaviors, best practices/strategies, and aliases
techniques. REACTIVE Filtration is only a final layer, last resort
In early 2002,
we launched Operation
On May 25,
we fired the 2nd shot: Operation
the final episode.
practices serve as examples of how to
do it right. These are also our current advocacies to clients. In
addition to these active preventive measures, we also deployed a major curtailment measures on
October 30, 2006, and stepped up on January 1, 2007.
