[vox] [OT] Spam wars episode III: revenge

Hash: SHA1

OK, last night, I got fairly fed up with an ICQ spammer, so I emailed AOL 
(had an aol.fr account he was hosting a page on, it's been derleted), his 
domain registar, his domain host (his page now shows a stock domain parking 
thing), his dialer provider (dialers are programs that establish PPP 
connections via 900 numbers to allow access to porn, the provider was polite 
and assured me they whould close his account and refuse to give him payouts), 
and of course ICQ.

Another notch in the spam belt.

Tonight I got a message form a 6 digit UIN that had a lot of conscutive 
digits, which I assumed to be cracked. He claimed that he was an ICQ admin, 
and was going to call my ISP and the feds because I wrote a ICQ password 
hacking program (for windows). uh-hu, right. he said the program contained my 
emai address and ICQ UIN (which I don't generaly use...) I checke, id didn't, 
but the site he said it was on was something I rembered having an image used 
from a spam site that the spammer I'd just got canned was using, and there 
was spamming software on the site. I told him to prove he was an admin by 
booting me off ICQ. He blocked me.

Anyway, he appears to be trying to get revenge on me for ruining his 
''buisness". I suspect he hasn't actualy complained to anyone. I have emailed 
my ISP and ICQ, anyway.

Anyone else been harrased by spammers after getting thier accounts blown away?
