I’m sure by now you’ve caught onto the fact that I have a tremendous distaste for spam. Well, the BBC wrote a little somethin’ that I can’t help but mention. In my last post I told you about a way webmasters could fight spam and track down the people harvesting addresses on their site. Now Lycos has created something that everyone can participate in and requires even less skill. It’s a screen saver that runs while your computer is resting and helps to shut down websites that are advertised in spam. Spammers have to pay bandwidth bills, and this will make sending spam much more expensive than they can afford. What an excellent idea!
The screensaver can be found at makeLOVEnotSPAM.com. Enjoy.
