Me, too. There's a good reason they are listed on rfc-ignorant.org.

However, after some digging, I found a place to report the stuff. Go


Fill in your name and email. For the offender's email, which I don't
know, I put "unknown@live.com". Then fill in the URL of the spamsite.
For the two selection boxes, I put "other" since none of the other
things fit. In the "Please provide as much detail ..." textarea box,
I put "Spamvertised web site:" and follow that with a cut-and-paste of
the entire spam with full headers.

Have at it.

The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and
honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their
worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men. Therefore once
more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom
of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will
vanish." Isaiah 29:13-14 (NIV)
