Anyone want to bet against them coming up with some kind of bribe for anyone leading the charge for cards?
Maybe a free second identity?

The solution to usenet spam is just to get a decent newsreader and possibly a proxy as described here http://improve-usenet.org/ Filter out anything from googlegroups and you're back with a nice, clean news service.

As one of the 'complete idiots' can I ask why I need to provide any proof? If you want to kill someone then I'd like to think that it would be up to you to come up with a reason or two why you think it'd be a good idea.
Away you go....
