Spam - A chance to hit back?

Compared to some, I have probably not had TOO much spam, and have used the 'Blocked Senders' List', and more recently 'MailWasher Free' to combat it. However, in the course of today, I have been blitzed with 129 messages, mostly the usual Viagra, fake watches/jewellery and Microsoft software. (Microsoft, so keen to protect its copyright (and rightly so!) appears to do nothing about it.)
Like Balderick, 'I have a cunning plan'. One of the unsolicited messages came from a UK -based concern, offering an '0800' number, click here. What a welcome opportunity this gives us! (Although, sadly, it does not help with the bulk of American, Russian and Asian trash that we seem to be forced to receive.) Maybe, if 'Dubya' could switch his ever-alert brain on, he might be persuaded to act.
