it simple .. all spammers must die.
I have had much success with some simple techniques.
posting to newsgroups with a nospam@blah address and jsut 550'ing all that
for a start.
550'ing anything .kr .cn china.com
tracerouting the website rather than the mail account, complaining from
root@<blah> to the host owner and the upstream
'550 no such user' does eventually seem to get through to them that I
really dont want this crap.
The box said "requires windows 95 or better"
So I installed Linux!
