This is a rant from a very angry user. There must be a way to fight
I am not complaining about spam blockers; the ones used by Rogers Yahoo!
and spamassassin do a pretty good job. But I would like a program
(illegal or not) that I could use to just take some of my spam and shove
it right back up the spammer's rose red ... Maybe blow up his computer.
I am not a prude. There is nothing in this world I haven't heard or
even said myself. But it is the dreary endless daily ten to twenty
messages offering me, in order of quantity, penis extenders, Viagra or
Cialis, pharmaceuticals, replica watches, and OEM software.
Most recently I started losing mail from a good friend and a delightful
lady named Andrea. Found it all in roger's/yahoo's block list, placed
there because of an endless stream of offers for extenders with a
"From:" line "Andrea". As a result I have had to check my junk mail
every day for the past week or so. The stream of crap that is being
caught by my blockers is mind boggling and getting cruder by the week.
I want to fight back. There is got to be a way, a hack, that lets me
follow this stuff back to its origin and that gives me the option of
metaphorically blowing up their machine.
