Lycos screen saver attacks spammers:

Lycos Europe is offering computer-users a weapon against spam-spewing servers: a screen-saver program that automatically hits the offenders with data to slow them down.

God help you if you're an ISP and one of your customers gets on this list. This sounds strikingly like a DoS attack, which I would think should be a no-no for public companies.
