My favorites for AOL Scomp reports are when people report sub/unsub as 
spam, then send nasty e-mails 20 minutes later that they either never 
got confirmation of what they did, or that it never actually removed them.

Had one user in particular, who reported mailing list as spam, purged 
them from said list myself, then 30 mins later signed back up, reported 
the subscription confirmation as spam, then complained after I removed 
him again.

Not exactly brightest bulb some of them are.
