    Default "Ken, Thanks, but unfortuna

    "Ken,

    Thanks, but unfortunately they are much more sophisticated than that. If they had a constant IP address (computer location) I could block it easily.

    They send these messages out from their own servers that mimic other computers and use multiple IP address.

    They don't rely on an ISP.

    Too bad they can't put all the knowledge and creativity towards something useful instead of something malicious. "
