Came across this the other day... was wondering if anyone uses this, and
/or thinks it's an effective way to annoy spammers?

I guess the spambot's supposed to get tons of bogus emails,
contaminating their lists.  Whether they truly care or not, dunno.  I
was a loyal member of bluefrog, which worked excellent, until they caved
in to terrorist-like spammer threats.  Darnit...

I'd guess this isnt' so much antispam as antispammer.  But if it's
effective in some way, I'll use it...

not sure I understand the point of this technique.

however, if used in conjunction with techniques to slow down the spider  
process or the mail out process then I'm all for it.

it would seem spammers don't care about invalid addresses.

ahh - yes, but the threats are only effective if decent ordinary punters  
are using real mail addresses at their own domains.  An underground  
movement of like minded folk could easily outwit such a thing.

The 'decentralise' idea may have legs.  We'll see.

one thing I've wondered about these auto-gen apps is how that can be  
assured they won't use a domain name that is, or will become, in use.
