Dealing with junk e-mails: Would this get me in trouble?

    I usually just delete the junk e-mails that show up in my work account. I think that various folks mine our server and connect random addresses to sent their political and commercial stuff to.

    Because I'm in a cranky mood, I'm thinking about pasting their return addresses in about every "send me some more information" or "put me on the e-mail list" option that I can find on the Internet.

    Will that get me into trouble?

    Don't know. But I received one of those "send me money so I can free up the million in the bank account and send it to you" e-mails at my work address. I responded with "have your lawyers contact mine so we can start finalizing the agreement"

    The father of the guy who set his short hairs on fire on the Amsterdam to Detroit flight is a Nigerian banker. So that's who's behind all these e-mails ...

    Just sign them up for Nambla. :)

    Actually, a lot of spam mails are generated by viruses that infect e-mail servers, with the address holders unaware they're being sent. So it's not always the fault of whoever's address is on the e-mail.
