How would you react spam-emails?

There are two ways to react the SPAM mails :
  • Filtering, deleting spam mails(less effective)
  • Make spammer's life really hard. (more effective)

    Usually spammers are using web-crawlers to get email addresses. If you put your email address somewhere on the web or newsgroup, they will get your email address using crawlers.

    Basically mod_spam_die confuses spam crawlers and give them infinitive fake email addresses. The mod_spam_die inspired by DIE.net and spam-conference. The mod_spam_die is an open source apache module under GPL and it creates infinitive webpages and emails.

    We really encourage installing this module and sending us your URL. We will link your URL from our project homepage, so that spam crawlers could follow your URL.

    Remember spammers are smart. If they know that mod_spam_die is installed in XXX.com, they will ignore the site. That's why we need your cooperation. :-)

    Again, it is very important make spammers life hard to give up spamming!!
