I'm under the impression that a lot of people don't even know what spam is anymore. Basically if they don't like it its spam to them, whether they signed up for you list or whatever or not (whether it really is spam or not!).

So you can't block there e-mail address?

I often get spam from ICQ, I usually send over 100 annoying messages to them while there offline for revenge http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif (I got some spam today from a school..... ahhh..... enemy, so I sent back RATTY... so it used up 450 characters around 50 times http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif).

I'm sure that people who spam with ICQ have an account JUST for spamming, and they won't read your messages at all. I know that makes sense, I wouldn't spam with my account, would get a lot of angry messages and stuff, and it would detract from the times when I REALLY wanted to chat... Just my thouhgts on how they work...

AFAIK, Spamcop is a great piece of software, and pretty intelligent in how it works:

It replies to anyone sending you a message with a message saying basically, "are you a real person? click this link if you are" and it does this only the first time.
If it's a spammer, they'll never get that email, so they'll never click the link, and so their mail (and any further mail from them) will never reach you.

If it's your cousing Joe, he gets the message from spamcop, reads it carefully clicks the link, and then spamcop lets all his mail through with no hassle after that.
