mm, Spam is good stuff, especially when grilled.

I use to battle spam by spamming the spammers.. that was fun.
Doing a WHOIS on the direct domain name via headers, and spamming the top level owners, it helped a lot and spam stopped coming from them sources..

This is how I did it:
Sending 1000's of emails with a 1mb static file to the same address with a message on top stating, I demand removal from your database all instances of my domain name from your servers. Your in violation of email protocol and have harvest my email address without permission. This message was also forwarded to the FTC.

EDIT
It worked for a long time, until I gave in and used a spam only email address for anything I was posting on the internet, thus leaving a personal email address for family and friends, that doesn't receive spam...

How's a guy supposed to make an honest living in the door to door business selling black market drugs to give ol one eyed Pete the girth needed to satisfy her? Spam hurts everyone.
