SPAM RESPONSES FOR LIBRARIANS
Fed up with the library email box filling up with spam? Are you angry enough to risk a further avalanche of unwanted messages? Spammers use responses to their pathetic missives to confirm your email address, then onsell it to other spammers.

Library of Congress: You have won!!!
Dear Dodgey Cruises,
Many thanks for the free cruise. All 800 of our staff
are now waiting for our free tickets. By the way, as we are
a federally funded body, we have copied your email to the
Federal Bureau of Investigation for their information files.
Free Audio Books!!!
We have taken up your offer of the free downloadable
files, and copied them onto disks to give away to our
library patrons on the basis of "previews". Further,
we have clearly marked your company's name on these disks,
so that our patrons can assess for themselves the poor quality
of your company's product. They will undoubtedly pass this
information onto their friends and acquaintances.
Glad we could be of assistance,
Watch Us Have Fun!!!
Dear Hot Wet Babes,
As a public library, we take great pride in ensuring that
the Internet services provided by us are appropriate,
current, and inoffensive. We can only thank you for bringing
your site to our attention, so we can not only filter it out,
but also pass the URL onto 120,000 other libraries so they can
do the same.
Many thanks again,
