I have decided to begin putting the email addresses of outfits that spam me
on Usenet, in the hope that they will be harvested by other spammers and
they get some of their own medicine.

Others feel free to join in and fight back.

Hers are some for starters:

And how many of those do you think are genuine spammer addresses and how
many addresses hijacked by the spammers? Its also a misuse of Usenet.
If you want to do something useful about spam join Spamcop or similar.

I have selected some that are obviously not spoofed, there is no point
asking me to respond to non-genuine addies. Hundreds of others I can do
nothing about.

Misuse of Usenet? tell that to the harvesters.

I used to use SpamCop, but it has become viertually useless.

Make one mistake and the legal costs might bankrupt you.


Don't believe you. Maybe you are one of the culprits?

It's quite likely those addresses could simply bounce anything sent to
them. You could also be reported for spreading spam.

'obviously not spoofed' - by what criteria?

By the criteria that I applied, of course. What's it matter to you?
