"We all hate spam and we love to blame spammers. But if you buy products or services from spam email, you are just as guilty as the spammers for creating the problem. Purchasing just one product bankrolls a spammer with enough money to spam another million people. We can stop the spam, together, if we stop clicking on spam and buying from spam." You can stop spam by sharing the word and using the banners on http://www.spamdontbuyit.org/.

Good stuff, well worth reading. (Grant)
