That Didn’t Take Long

Well, it didn’t take long – as I mentioned a few days ago, Lycos has undertaking the very dubious, and probably illegal in some areas of the world, step of producing an opt-in Denial Of Service attack for people to use against spammers.

Now, the spammers are fighting back (well, what did Lycos expect??)

Update – the BBC is now reporting that the screensaver has now taken several websites down – is Lycos now the purputrator of a dDOS attack – I certainly think so…

Another Update 6-12-04 – (thanks James)
It would appear that the Makelovenotspam website has been taken down by Lycos…
