What good does that do? The majority of spam sent these days appears to be
sent through compromised machines acting as zombies, so all this would
accomplish would be to suck up a little more of the compromised machines'
CPU power. Big deal. It likely wouldn't even slow the spam rate down
appreciably, and if it does, they just infect more zombies :-).
