OT: spammers are using my domain again



So I'm getting tons of bounces because the spammers have made their way back 
around to my personal domain and are sending out their crap with 
<something>@haligonian.com as the forged From: address.

I don't really care since I have bogofilter installed and it puts every damn 
one of them in my "unsure" folder and I never need to see them, but just to 
be thorough...

Does anyone know of anything I could do to get them to move on from spoofing 
my domain to spoofing the next victim's domain?

Is there any real harm to me that they are spoofing my domain, btw? I assume 
that network admins are smart enough now that they realize almost all spam 
addresses are spoofs and they don't go arbitrarily blacklisting poor suckers 
like me. :-(

Now, I'm assuming this is straight forging, and that no spammers are actually 
using any network resources related to me (since I pay $10/yr for a web/mail 
hosting account for haligonian.com and don't run my own servers).
