Stopping Spam

If people started responding to just 1% of the spam we received, spammers would drown in the responses, and the mortage spam responses wouldn't be worth an email, much less $50.

Slashdot’s proposal of attacking the spammer business model is quite interesting. I am unwilling to participate, however, for a few reasons.

The idea has its merits, but this is the sort of thing that requires unity among people in replying to spam—a proposal that will probably never be followed through.
