What not to do about spam
There is one cardinal rule to remember when dealing with spammers and rogue
sites: we must hold the high moral ground.
Therefore, when dealing with a spammer or a rogue site, don't:
And above all else, don't use spam to fight spam. This also
applies in Usenet - don't follow up to spam postings, lest your posting also
- Threaten violence or vandalism;
- Mailbomb the site;
- Mailbomb the alleged spammer, who may be an innocent third party such as
- Ping-storm or SYN-flood the site;
- Hack into the site;
- Try in any way to bring the site down illegally.
