Sorry if this topic isnt about our beloved game but its important..

Lycos came out with an awesome idea against spam sites..you just download a tiny little screensaver and when you dont use your pc it kicks in...the screenS sends requests to known spamsites in order to make them exceed bandwitdth and make them pay huge bills for it...on your side it will move not more than 2-3 mb in 24 hours wich is nothing considering most connections..i left it 10 minutes and the screensaver moved less than 10k..

the idea is to build up critical mass to overload the servers so tell everybody you know about this..

go to www.makelovenotspam.com and read about it..ITS WORTH IT AND GIVES NO HASSLE TO THE USER..

www.makelovenotspam.com tells you the screensaver sends a source view request to the most known spamsites. Wont this generate hits for their sites and further their profits through banner adds etc?

i really dont know glass but i dont think so..the idea is to make them spend in bandwidth..if 5 million people used this screensaver at the same time the spammers would have their bills skyrocketing..

Sounds like a pretty good idea but the possibilities for abusing it are too risky, for instance whats to stop these people from using this screensaver to launch large scale denial of service attacks on non spam companies?
