Occasionally I'll get a reply from an ISP or IP reseller apologizing and
telling me the sh!thead's account has been deleted.  That right there is
such a gratifying feeling, I can't even begin to describe it.  It literally
makes me day.  :-)

But I also have to say -- I can't prove this because I don't have the time
to do a study any longer, but I swear that when I faithfully report spam to
spamcop, my overall spam level goes down, at least temporarily.

The obvious hypothesis is that accounts keep spamming me until the account
gets complained about and dies.  Or perhaps my email address gets taken off
of some lists as being a "troublemaker" recipient.

In any event, I really do think my spam levels go down for awhile after
faithfully reporting spam to spamcop for a while.  After a month or so of
not using spamcop, they seem to go back up.
