i'm working on that right now.

at this point, i have spamcop's url.  i need to figure out how to send
the spam.  my current approach is to write a perl script to handle it.

once i successfully do that, all their verbose data will be at our

the perl script mentioned above can generate a webpage that allows you
to pick and choose which one you want to do (would have to run as root

if anyone wants to help out, i'd be glad to collaborate.   hopefully,
i'll get my firewall fully done today and will work on it some more in
the afternoon.
