Screensaver ping overloads spammers & increases their costs.

Overview

The make LOVE not SPAM screensaver is an effort made by Lycos Europe to try and make life a little harder for the people who buy and use SPAM as an advertisement channel.

This screensaver will generate hidden visits on these sites which will result in a higher cost of operation for the operators and hopefully make them redeem theirselves by not using SPAM no more.

Maybe this can be redone, if not by lycos- by someone. Try making it similar to a P2P client. Too sporadic of a target to hit, yes? If they dodge left, let's go left. Those monkies need to pay. If I get one more spam about my dog needing siding from SEARS® on his house, viagra for his 13 year old kit-n-kaboodle® and mammories the size of alaska- I think I am gonna lose it.

Scam not Spam? LOL my mailbox being flooded with adverts for cialis, viagra, celebrex, casino's, greeting cards, stock opportunities, whatever the case the issue is my privacy, not the validity of the products being sold. I want to hurt them.. oh yeah.. im imagining it right now baby.. twist your head to the left a little.. is that painful?.. oh yeah.

Seems these guys simply ripped off the idea from another company that was already doing this waay before them. Its called spamitback (spamitback.com), and allows you to choose which spammers, plus a whole bunch of different ways of getting back at them.

Hello, everybody. I just learned of the Make Love Not Spam screensaver and looked over some of your written reviews and I believe I comprehend the concerns of both sides of our fence. I get between 40 to 50 unwanted emails a day which I forward to our United States Federal Trade Commission at spam@uce.gov in hopes to track down and stop any number of these unethical solicitors and/or criminals. I've found in my own psychoanalyses of these unwanted emails that perhaps has much as 99% aren't actually so-called spam, but rather in reality is SCAM, or in other words criminals have seized the opportunity to take advantage of the spam business where now the SCAMMERS have outnumbered the spammers by at least 99% to 1. What used to be a spam issue is now a SCAM matter of mainly criminal activity. Anyone who still perceives the problem as spam instead of SCAM needs to be updated on recognizing the differences between spam versus SCAM, for example, it's criminally minded people responsible for more than 99% of my total emails and nearly always contains either 1 of 5 things, either pharmaceutical drugs, scammers faking as banks asking for update information, genuine fake watches, financial/mortgage loans, or information with sexual content. My interpretation of what would comprise a true spammer is someone who might ask me if I might be interested in hearing about financial loans and if I say no then they politely leave me alone, whereas a true SCAMMER will pretend my loan is preapproved when I have no such loan to exist in the first place, that's a SCAMMER looking for innocent victims. Considering how difficult it is with present resouces to catch so many white-collar criminals that use spam techniques, I can't disregard any and all attempts to help our global community in reducing the number of criminal activity. I'll probably download Make Love Not Spam screensaver but I might end up not installing it because I need to have the scammers to continue to try and scam me, in order for me to have something to forward to spam@uce.gov in hopes of tracking these scammers down, however, I would think it's helpful in having others reduce the work load by putting any number of small time email scammers out of business. Lastly, I believe there's been a direct correlation between the amount of scam emails I receive and whether or not I made attempts to unsubscribe. I used to get around 10 a day and have tried 3 different occassions to see what would happen by trying to unsubscibe from these scam emails, and in each case within several weeks the amount noticeably increased by roughtly 10 to 12 more scam emails a day. SCAMMERS seem to look for anyone who might respond to their SCAM in any sort of way because their SCAMS can't work unless their victims are interacting with the SCAM. It seems as long as SCAMMERS can get a click out of anybody it automatically tells them they have better odds of SCAMMING, then the intended victim's worth goes up along with the cost of the intended victim's name as it becomes more saleable in the black market, and the next I know, I get a dozen more nearly identical email SCAMS all employing spamming techniques. Please accept my apology for remaining anonymous as I shall be continuing to forward SCAM emails to spam@uce.gov. Thank you for you time, Sincerely, me

It looks like this screen saver won't attack spammers for the moment at least. Both the screen saver and the "More Info" (MakeLoveNotSpam.com) site display a "Stay Tuned" message. Although this type of thing may cause a little trouble for users of spam-hosting ISPs, I think its worth it.
