    I really don't know why they thought this would work. I'm behind the idea, and would gladly DDoS spammers off the internet, however it's not like these people don't know how to retaliate.

    Ah well, nice try I guess :D

    Yeah, I like how it may have backfired...

    "Lycos Europe's tactics apparently may have rebounded on the company. According to security company F-Secure, one of the Web sites the company targeted in its zombie army attack--www.mortgage.info--redirected traffic back to www.makelovenotspam.com. This means that Lycos Europe could have unintentionally affected its own Web site."
