    Angry subject: remove

    Is it a good idea to respond to spam via remove or a blank email...or is this just a ploy to get MORE spam from different morons.

    YES! I am in debt...but you can't help --

    Don't reply this just confirms your email address is "live". Just filter them out.

    Do not reply them at all. That would make them email you more.

    Many people reply to spam with a blank email, or with "remove" or "unsubscribe" in the subject.

    It appears that many people are taught to do this by the guys at AOL or whatever ISP they use.

    Don't be like many people. Be smart.
