Actually, the really nasty thing most professional spammers do is to have a search engine
index every public posting to every newgroup or listserv that they can find, and then resell
those email addresses to other fellow spammers.

The problem is that spamming for the most part is free and is one reason why E-Postage
actually is a good idea if the recipient is compensated by the sender for receiving anonymous

Otherwise your best defense is a delete key.
