        Does anyone know of a 'suitable' tool (definition of exactly
what such a tool should do purposely left unstated) to apply to people
like this? The polite 'education' method of informing people (which I
was a believer in for a while) that this is not a sociable thing to do
always seems to miss a few newcomers who promptly make the same
mistake. My current theory (regressing to 17th century penal ideology)
is that we should punish the offendors so horribly that word of what
happens to you when you do this will become instant network folklore.
I used to send such pinheads a few megabytes of mail manually, but
maybe a tool that sends them 253 copies of SF-LOVERS every hour for
three weeks is the right thing.
