   Good idea and one that is probably already in the works.

    Be careful when undertaking protest letters. Spammers can be very
vicious and their computer skills may be considerable. They can retaliate
against you in a number of ways. Mail bombs can be sent to your account
that will crash your account. Your e-mail address may be forged on a
pornographic web site describing you as a promiscuous person desiring e-mail.
Tread lightly when you deal with these wackos...they have no social
conscience. Consider sending a letter to list SPAM-L (please don't
forward the entire spam...just a very small portion or a description of
the offending letter).
