Since the Rods & 247 can't seem to get this under control, maybe the inmates can save the asylum by attacking the source.
Looks like all the links are to blogspot sites, which are powered by blogger, which is owned by Google.
Go to http://support.google.com/blogger/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=42577 and paste the spam link (e.g. http://live-soccer-usa.blogspot.com/)
If enough people report the spam, Google just might terminate the sites. It's a bit of a whack-a-mole approach, but it's a start.
I'll be researching some other potential, and more devious, methods of counter-attack and post anything I find here.

Companies with 877 numbers have to pay for every incoming call. Give them a call & bitch. Or just keep calling & hanging up.

Here they are on Twitter: https://twitter.com/etvcorp
I don't Twitter, so I'm not sure how useful this is.
And here they are on Facbook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Etvcorps-Product/346246608803493
Go write something nasty on their page or report them for abuse.

This is an issue.
There is an email address listed.
google etvcorp and you'll see that there are lots of problems with this entity.
Also seems that they are stealing clicks from others on clickbank.
My virus software stopped that site from showing. I think you're on to something.
Post spam about subscribing to tRCMB on their page?

They are spammers. Why hasn't anyone (247? ) called the FBI?
btw: Anyone have an auto dialer app?
No, just hack their sites and put up all the Wells discussions instead.
Here's the Google Street View of the address:
It's a Thai restaurant http://www.tomyumkoongma.com/
Now, either this restaurant has a secondary business, or the spammers are using the address without their knowledge. Either way, I'm sure they'd love to hear from us. Call in some delivery orders or make some reservations for ETVCORP
You can also let them have it on Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/tom-yum-koong-ii-arlington

Pretty sure it's a bunch of frakking toasters.
email bomb this address telling them their ETVCORP affiliate is spamming this site & it needs to stop.
If you'd like to remain anonymous, use http://anonymouse.org/anonemail.html to send your email.
Here's SatelliteDirect's Wiki: http://www.aboutus.org/SatelliteDirect.com
I'm sure an entry about their affiliate spamming 247 would be very helpful.
Satellite Direct is registered thru GoDaddy. Here's GoDaddy's report abuse page:
The site is hosted by WebAir: http://www.webair.com/
Give WebAir a call, or chat with a rep online. Let them know they are hosting a spammer site.
I'm going to call and place an order at 5:00pm. If you would like to dine with me, please let me know what you want. Dinner is on me.
Call the 877 number and order take-out. (1-877-388-2671 )
One of everything please, I'm really hungry right now.

just curious...but why should we have to deal with this and not the overlords?
If i was paying (or was going to pay) I'd be freaking pissed
Let's nuke the General Soccer thread and ban all soccer related posts just to be safe. I'm sure that thread popped up in one of their spambot searches. And really, no one is going to miss a thread on flopping football.
