Stuart just sent me this link about keeping the connection open to spammer’s mail servers to help bring them down. Kind of an “Acceptance of Service” attack you could say:
Unfortunately, when Stuart said, “the guy kept a spammer tied up for days”, he didn’t mean literally. Reading the article took away the only joy I got today from misunderstanding that sentence. Still, another step in defeating spam isn’t bad.
What I’d really like to see is a spammer captured using the latest “search technology”, tied up with “silk ties”, hung upside down from an “RC helicopter” and force fed “diet pills and viagra” until his eyes popped out. Having him (or her) constantly listen to messages about sons/daughters/widows of former African dictators would also be nice, specially if she (or he) was one herself.
