    Don't you just hate SPAM email clogging up your inbox? I just got a great idea! Use the reply button and just email them back! Maybe say nothing or a quick message - "Just spamming you back asshole!" If everyone spammed back the spammers and clogged their inboxes these spammers would stop too, or maybe be discouraged unless they use a useless account where they don't check their mail! Isn't this a great idea?

    And don't fall for that check cashing business where you open a bank account and process checks and get a cut! They mail you counterfeit checks and then clear you out and when those checks bounce they've left you with a messed up balance that you're accounted for!

    But an administrator said to not open and reply to spam or you'll get more - will that happen?

    You really are a dipshit, aren't you? Did you just discover the internet and email today? Have you ever heard of this thing called a "spam filter?"

    News for the terminally brain dead: replying to the spam sent you by bots and spammers only verifies that your email is a valid address.

    Are you sure that you actually got an engineering degree? Are you saying that you haven't read any of the thousands of articles in magazines, newspapers, e-zines, or internet news outlets? You're why spammers and scammers find such success.

    Forward the messages to SpamCop. They'll report the messages anonymously to the sender's ISPs and get the senders shut down.
