Default Revenge on Spammers

Just thought I'd share this. Let'* see if we can stop any of those annoying spam e-mails that I know we all get on a constantly annoying basis.

Wow, that'* probably the first company that'* actually come up with something that could really turn the tables on the spammers.....And spam them back.

I'm gonna download it on my PC when I get home from Bonne Fest.

The problem is, the spammers will always find a way as long as there are stupid people to buy things from them. The only reason they do this is because they make lots and lots of money off of the idiots that actually click their links and buy body-part enlarging machines and diet pills. If people would just stop buying, those spam emails would go away forever (fat chance of that happening though).

But you also have to look at how many people are actually looking for those things, like googling for them.
