I have been fighting spammers for months and finally the authorities have shut down a major spam ring. They were peddling fake watches and herbal supplements and now they are shut down yes. I consider myself a small part of this investigation because I report every spam mail to the ISP and the FTC . I was so sick of getting viagra pushers and phishing scammers flooding my inbox that I decided to fight back and it is now a tenth of what it was. It is not hard to fight them, just a matter of forwarding the email to the ISP and FTC with the full email header along with the body of the email. Contact your email service to find out how to get the full header and they will give you detailed information on how to fight spam not just block it.
