    Fighting spammers with honeypots.

    In case you don't know securityfocus(www.securityfocus.com); there was added a paper that I thought was very much worth reading about fighting spammers with honeypots.

    Wasn't there a law passed in the US that makes spamming illegal??? I remember hearing about it on the news... They should pass a law like that in all of north america

    I appreciate you posting that information, we are in the process of making a couple of these servers for two of our locations and having these helps solidify my stance. Thanks a bunch!
