I am now the proud installer of the make love not spam screensaver by lycos. The idea of this is very appealing, when your computer goes into screensaver mode, it will make random requests to sites that are advertised by spam. The idea being to completely cain their bandwidth. Figures are something along the lines of 8MB of bandwidth consumed per screensaver, so if enough people get the screensaver these sites with their less than agreeable advertising techniques will have to pay for gigabytes of bandwidth per day.
Hopefully they’ll get the message and stop using spam mail.

Rise up! Gentle reader, fight the terror of spam!
