Anti-spam plan overwhelms sites (BBC NEWS)

A plan to bump up the bandwidth bills of spammers seems to be getting out of control. Earlier this week Lycos Europe released a screensaver that bombards spam websites with data to try to increase the cost of running such sites.

BWA HA HA HA! – Vigilantism or not, this is just too funny
