Spam Honey Pot

Global heating and Viruses/Spam.. Three major threats to every day life nowadays..Project Honey Pot helps to catch spammers with a new distributed system, presented at MIT spam conference . Honey Pot catches spammers who illegally harvest e-mail addresses from websites. The software generates unique tags for e-mail addresses, and records when, and by whom (or by which server), an address was harvested. That info is the kind lawyers need to sue and prosecute spammers successfully. There's also two new websites out, and, to help people document illegal spam and take offenders to court.
There's money to be made in anti spam filters, anti spam trackers, contra spamming, spam laws etc.. heck it's starting to grow into a whole new industry.
