Preventing False Spam Reports in SpamCop Lounge Posted May 4, 2005 Which is probably a good reason for not saying that it is illegal. Perhaps "may be illegal"? However, I believe that the notes in the parser page relating to why a reporter should ensure that s/he is really reporting spam and to the right abuse addresses are (or, rather, should be) more than sufficient justification for us following the rules.... When I first posted the suggestion, I didn't realize that it was open to so much interpretation. But I think that with a good lawyer, you could easily convince a jury that computer abuse and libel have occured, especially if the harasser is retaliating for you reporting them for spam (i.e. has motive) or is harassing you in other ways. But, you are right, on second thought, probably not a good idea to post it. That seems to be just one person's issue. I'm glad it hasn't stopped you from continuing to post here to explain further. <g>27624[/snapback] Thanks.
