Hi,

I hate spam, and I hate people talking **** and making money from scams off martial arts. Recently some **** spammed my mates muay thai website. The spammers website is selfdefensecombat.com. The book he is selling is complete **** and full of contradictions and misinformation - I tried to email the "author" to challenge him to a professional muay thai or mma match but the email address he has provided is fake (big surprise). Despite claiming to have over 150 "street/prison fights" he still has to hide behind a fake email address.

So what I want to know is who is exactly behind this website? I really want to fight him. Does anyone have any idea how I can find out? I'm talking a professional match with a referee that I can video tape and put on youtube to discredit his product as complete bunk. If he won't come to Thailand to fight me I am happy to go to where ever he is in the world to fight him, as long as I can video tape it and post it on the internet.

If they are spamming it's probably a violation of his hosts terms of service.
See http://www.servage.net/page/terms_of_service/

If you can prove they spammed, you might have grounds for action on that front.

Regarding the book, what are the contradictions & misinformation? Is it really wrong, or is it you think its wrong? (ie opinion, different way of doing something, etc). Not being familiar with muay thai I have to ask in the interest of fairness.

Also please do remember that challenge posts are against our rules.

Akira, fighting over a advertisement which this is, not really a website as such, isn't such a good idea. I'd ignore it and keep the fighting for the ring and get paid properly for it as well as ranked.

Wow - this is really in poor taste. We're posting the guy's personal info just because someone doesn't like spam??

WTF, Bob?

Cheers! I couldn't resist I'm afraid, there's certain programmes like Python that make taking things seriously very very difficult!

WHOIS information is public.

What Carol said. WHOIS is public information, every domain has a listing, though some go through anonymous proxys.

There is no content on my own web site (www.ss7expert.com) but someone could just as easily look up the WHOIS information for it as well.

I'm just saying there are tech geeks here who know about WHOIS ... and plenty of users who don't.
