Lycos Spam Screensaver

Interesting idea via arstechnica:

Lycos Europe will begin offering a new screensaver that it hopes will make spamming an increasingly costly business. The screensaver, available at cleverly-named makelovenotspam.com, works by hitting sites that advertise in spam e-mails with an endless barrage of data requests. Lycos hopes to get a sufficient number of people signed up and running the screensaver so that spammers will see their bandwidth bills soar. The sites targeted will come from blacklists generated by Spamcop and other anti-spam organizations.
