It's just the latest in the series of fiascos that we've seen when
people try to respond to abuse with abuse. It doesn't work, it's
not going to work, and the most likely outcome of any attempt to
make it work will be yet another illustration of the law of
unintended consequences. (e.g. Lycos' "MakeLoveNotSPam")
Not to mention that furnishing useful intelligence to the enemy
(which BS does by design) is a poor strategy.
