SpamSit is the occupy spam sit-in tool. Individually, you may choose to protest with a sit-in at the websites that are advertised in the spam you have received. You may also choose to protest scam spam by responding with randomly generated email. Unlike a spam filter, SpamSit is unique in providing you the information and tools you need to protest spam. Your individual protest will do no harm, but the protest of thousands may disrupt the spammer economy and end spam.
Like the Greensboro sit-ins, your protest occupies a seat (connection) at the website hosts, that you have selected, for a random amount of time. Since there are limited seats (connections) available, if enough users receive spam for the same website and choose to protest, paying customers have trouble getting through. The occupy spam protest focuses on the web hosts the spammers depend on for their income. If you interrupt the spammer economy, spam stops.
SpamSit will gather the spam you receive from your IMAP hosts such as Gmail, Yahoo and AOL. SpamSit can also gather spam from your email clients such as Thunderbird, Windows Mail and Outlook. When you run a new batch SpamSit will load the spam from your sources into a database and extract all URL's from the spam you receive and then trace the URL to the final web host. Optionally, the program will then perform a domain block list look-up on all the domains found. You will then be presented with a list of domain/ips from which to select the web hosts you wish to protest. Your selections will be remembered so you only need to select once.
The program also generates a list of possible scam emails. These are the ones offering you outrageous sums of money for whatever reason. If you chose to protest this spam you can send a randomly generated email response. If the scammers receive too many protest emails they may not be able to find the responses from the suckers that might pay them.
Your protest alone will not cause any harm. It will not break any laws or terms of service of your isp.
