   "you people", "you bionet people", "you guys",....

    The vast majority of the thousands of bionet readers simply ignored
your nonsense and hoped you'd go away.

  So now you're fantasizing about spamming the entire bionet because,
what -- 5 people?  10 people? -- wrote email to a sysadmin (which, by
the way, is certainly within their "rights").

  Grow up, keep your own and your friend's semi-literate adolescent
garbage off of the grownups' newsgroups, and bad net.things will likely
cease happening to you.

  By the way, I was certainly not one of the net-cops.  I've grown more
tired and passive, I guess, in the face of the virtually constant onslaught
of spoiled children, clueless newbies, predatory trolls, political and
religious wackos, and slimy lawyers and MAKE.MONEY.FAST.greedheads ruining
the net.  Your drooling friend was just another in the series.   Some people,
less patient or resigned than myself, reacted, predictably.  The sysadmin 
over-reacted, in my opinion.  Deal with it.
