Well, If I had the skills, I would use trojanned machines to DDOS
My volume of spam is to the point of a DDOS on my mail accounts. I no longer
sympathise with the compromised machine owners. If they get cut off by their
ISP's and clean up their hosts all the better. If they simply stay cut off
that's fine too., one less spam delivery vector.
And No don't tell me about filters, having to poke through the Sh*te folder
to find false positives is no improvement on poking through my inbox ,which,
with my filters and whitelists, is now better than 99.95% spam.only.
Spamcop mail is not an option for me, due to security policy my corporate
accounts cannot be forwarded or retrieved by SC.
