    Spam Statistics

    I was reading the half bakery the other day, and someone had the idea of having a page, which distributes a different e-mail address to each visitor, collecting information (client type, access times, ip address, etc.). Then, if that specific address receives e-mail, that means that the client was somehow tied to the spam.

    I thought it would be interesting to see what sort of information I could gather this way, so I've implemented it. I was just wondering if anyone can link to the page, so that some e-mail harvesters can start dropping by it.

    Interesting. Shouldn't you prefix the adress with something more imaginative than "User", though? I guess it probably doesn't matter, but still...

    I spammed you, BTW. Just to see if you're able to see my statistic. Please post it here.

    One of these days I shoudl write an autospammer, and make it so annoying that they have to pass a law against spam.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    I think the first step has already been achieved - the second step has been implemented in some countries, but of course, you have to convince ALL countries to sign up to prevent this from happening [and prevent criminals from using security holes to bypass the rules].
