I believ that personal treats are no good unless you realy mean it. AK
47 and go. Since I don't own AK47 I use a different method. I called
Better Business Bureau (BBB) and told them about the incident from some
companies. I also called their phone lines from work (trunk lines) so they
can't use my private phone as a target practice. BBB also has web sites on
different states. Swamp them with complaints about those companies that
use spam. I came across a company that apologized big time because their
sales jerk did that. I bet they got a lot of complaints.
Another possiblity is those with fax numbers. Use a PC and send them 20
black pages so that their ink dries out. If they sue you then sue them
back. They were the ones who started the war. I believe that spammers are
not taken seriously enough. Let's apply some old West methods, hang the
one spammer from the 19" rack with TP cable and the rest will find
something else to do. And don't deal with lawyers crap. They are the
downfall of this country.
Guys who try to sell you a phone service sometimes use their home phone in
spam. A script from cron on your machine can change their life for a
while. The same applies to 800#s.
I checked www.digicrime.com and many pages kill Netscape big time. Lynx
works fine through most of the stuff. Never crashed.
