Make Love Not Spam

Via the BBC. A few days ago I downloaded a screensaver called “Make Love Not Spam“. When the screensaver is activated the websites of goods and services mentioned in spam emails are endlessly sent data requests with the hope of slowing the websites down and increasing the spammer’s hosting bills. Let’s hope it works.

UPDATE: Apparently, the screensaver was too successful.

A Futher UPDATE: The campaign was stopped.
