    Most commercial spammers hit open SMTP relays w/ custom software written for the purpose of sending mass emails. Not hotmail, etc.

    Well I love this move and was wondering if they did something like this currently. I hope more email companies follow.

    the best way to fight spam is at the ISP level.

    It's about the 4th or 5th random thread he's bumped from 2003 in the last couple days -- none of them relevant to anything and none with any additional comment other than 'bump.'

    It's usually the type thing you see from a Chinese spambot when they need to get enough posts to start posting garbage, but I'm not sure in this case why. May be time for a mod to look into things

    Please stop. Further "bumps" will lead to loss of membership privileges.
