Most spam is sent from compromised windows machines. will
help you track their ISP's. Now, you just need legislation that
sending spam is illegal and that those sending it will be held
responsible. Even if their computers are compromised. That means that
people will need to start being responsible for securing their
computers. Like they are with their homes and cars.

Think about how much less spam we would have if AOL would disconnect
every zombie. And how many people would abandon the OS that allows it.
