  I have been getting a lot of spam the last couple of months.  I came 
across this site: http://spamcop.net/.  You sign up (it's free), providing 
them w/ a valid email address (use one of your "freebie" accounts.)  They 
will send you confirmations to this address.  I have received confirmations 
from ISPs that a particular spammer's account has been terminated.  I at 
least feel like I'm fighting back!
