i set up two mail aliases, aardvark and zygote, that simply add anyone who sends mail to them to a list whose mail will just get dropped. i mention and link to them here so that spammers will pick them up and start flinging themselves at this new brick wall. the amount of spam i'm getting seems to have picked up again recently (despite filters which appear to be blocking a fair amount of it). there also appears to be an especially dumb scraper out there that has picked up some of the message-ids from messages i've posted to some mailing lists, which aren't even valid email addresses. those lead to the same place as aardvark and zygote now, too.
