You put words into my mouth. I said DDOS, not illegal. I did use the
term "possibly illegal" because you are NOT in a position to indemnify
all users of this program against all possible complaints. Plus
sometimes a company will pay a spammer to advertise the competition to
mudsling them. You will play right into the spammers hands.

Make up your mind. It's either an attack or it isn't.
P.S. it is.

This is the same "masses" that continually click on "document.scr" 100
times a day? The same "masses" that don't ever apply Miscreantsoft
patches? The same "masses" that use their name as their password? I
could go on. You proved my point though.

It's even weaker to trust all these idiot users out there to do your
anti-spam work for you. It's even weaker to blindy DDOS a website
because a spammer told you to. If the spammer told you whitehouse.gov
sent you the spam would you DDOS them too?
How about you make a client that sits on windows machines and shocks a
user in the testicles every time they open an executable attachment from
an unknown source? At least that solves a problem people want solved.
