The headers were untraceable, so mailbombing this person is not
feasible. It'll probably only wind up clogging mailbase with even more
junk than what we hope to avoid. However, aside from simply refusing
on principle to deal with anyone who spams lists like pcp, does anyone
have any suggestions about how to deal with this crap? Since it's
impossible to email the spammer how 'bout sending some large heavy
parcels via snail-mail to :

> Magazine Club Inquiry Center
> Att. Internet services dept.
> PO Box 120990
> Staten Island NY 10312-0990

with neither postage nor return address, the words "postage payable on
delivery" scrawled on the outside, and a message saying "Janet Dove's
referral was a spam on a group I subscribe to" on the inside? Think
they'll get the hint after unwrapping a few bricks?
