Anytime I tried reporting spam to a rather well known ISP, I always got
a bucket load more, straight away.  That lead me to believe the
following possibilities:

      * Spammer working in the ISP
      * Compromised machines in the ISP
      * The ISP reported to the spammer that I had complained about
        them, and identified me in the process.

I want an extra button on my mail client.  Next to the reply one, there
should be a destroy sender button which sends a few thousand Volts
through their PC...

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
