Why let the sleaze balls have all the fun?
We've traded garbage cans full of unsolicited mail for full blocked or deleted bins.
Here is a site that has information on stopping the bad guys, including information from their perspective.
- Spam Archives
"A number of far-sighted people have been saving all their spam and have put it online. This is a valuable resource for anyone writing Bayesian filters."
- How to Spam
"The links on this page are to companies that provide the infrastructure of spam. It's fairly disgusting reading, but a quick scan will give you some ideas about filtering."
- Spammers' Stories
"These articles about spammers are very helpful in understanding how to stop spam. For example, complaining to the ISPs that spammers use does seem to inconvenience them.
And best of all, so does filtering. In one article below, a spammer complains that filters have increased his costs 1,000-fold. That's exactly what we want to hear. New laws and policies may stop spam. Making it unprofitable certainly will."
