Death to spammers!

An eventual, slow, painful, lingering one. In my personal vision of Hell, I have an entire circle reserved for spammers, virus writers, people who double-park on busy roads and who bring excessive amounts of hand luggage onto planes. Of course, if we were talking about a Chinese Hell, we could get a damn sight more creative and varied ie sawing in half, boiled in blood, crushed beneath stone wheels etc.

I got a whole load of bounce messages from Hotmail today. All because some spammer's been sending loads of pharma spam mail using random addresses at my domain as the return address. A quick DNS lookup shows they're being sent from china-netcom.com based in Guanzhou in the PRC which means the likelihood of any sort of satisfactory resolution is minimal.

Anyone have any advice on what I can do about this, apart from keeping a low profile and hoping they use someone else's domain next?

On a slightly less ranty note, back to KL tomorrow and I guess I should post an update on what I've been up to in Malaysia and Hong Kong...
