[linux-elitists] is it wrong to slam a spammer?

Even with militant rbl's and every other damn filter and classifier i know of i'm
still getting spammed, used to be 5 a week now its 40 a day. I would like to
reach and beat the f!*k out of a few of these asshats, but since that isn't
possible i'm left looking for other options.
Ok, so at the risk of quite possibly pissing off those i haven't already pissed
off at some point before i have a question i still want to ask.
Anyone have a copy of formfucker? or know of something else like it?
A looong while back on nanae i heard someone mention an app called
formfucker, basically it poisons spammers databases on their lead sites. you
know, "come and fill out a quick 1 page questionaire and someone will get back
You point this app/formfucker at their lead page and it fills it in with real
looking yet sudo random data, all of the address's and zipcodes are correct for
the cities written in but all fake data. I have a few really pesky spammers i
would love to spend a day or two with, figuring i can come at them from
about 80 ip's from all over the web they would end up with a totally useless
Im sure there are a few on this list that this whole concept completely offends
them, sorry about that. My thinking is this, you can only hurt these guys two
ways, the bandwidth cost of their hosting site or the "goods they are trying to
hawk". while one person isn't able to suck them dry for bandwidth one person
can poison their leads. Many of these losers are trying to sell the leads, to
unsuspecting companies who apparently are not asking how they are generated.
Well poisoning the list is about the easiest way to put them out of business. It
guarantee's no repeat business, it turns them into the car dealer who only sells
really bad lemons, If they think its ok to send a hundred million emails why not
give him some bad leads for all his troubles?
