Well, for starters Cindy, I'd say we shouldn't repost spam in it's
entirety. *That* certainly doesn't help. You could write to
postmaster at offending_site with a copmlaint, but I'd guess most of these
people are out for a fast strike. Apparently there's a whole new batch
of spam-posting software out there, so I think we'll have to live with
it for a while.
I am (like most people) pretty annoyed by this sort of crap, but when I
think of the alternatives (_more_ control of posting) I realize I can
easily live with quite a bit of "junk mail". Most people are learning to
just ignore it... filter it out. The *worst* thing you can do is to help
the schmucks out by reposting their adverts!
