Although unethical and it's fighting with fire, I think it's a great idea *installs*

I think its a great idea really, everyone wants to fight back against spammers and finally a big company has stepped in to help out. I cant understand how people could feel sorry for them, then again it is the bbc

this really wont do anything, since we're all using "essence" ill use it too

in essence if we increase their bandwidth, thus they need more money, thus more spam. its a never ending cycle of wasted time and money!
