Continued from page 1
I've dedicated quite a few pages on my site that have nothing but email addresses from blacklist. That is, addresses of spammers, most of which are false and don't lead to anyone ... at least not to anyone who can read (otherwise I'd include an obscene message).
When spam harvesting software goes through my site, it won't find a single working email address in my site proper, but it will stumble on a goldmine of addresses and load them into it's database. It will be stuffed full of email addresses, none of which work. The spammers will pay to send them out and they'll bounce somewhere, hopefully right back to them.
Imagine what would happen if we all did that? There would be so many dud addresses floating around that harvesting would be a waste of time. spammers would all go away and do something legitimate ... perhaps.
You and I would get some relief from these annoying intruders in our email inboxes.
If you are in a position to load your site with a few thousand dud email addresses, why not give it a go and Stuff Spammers?
