Spamming the Spammers

Have you ever wondered who responds to those spam emails telling you that some Nigerian prince wants to bring his millions of dollars over to Canada and just needs someone to pay the legal fees in advance?
Well one of my friends here at work has been spamming the spammer. For the last month or so he's been emailing back and forth with one particular spammer. He traced him to an internet cafe in Amsterdam and has been filling him with stories of a rich Sicilian backer named 'Big Al'.
Apparantly there are whole web sites dedicated to helping people spam spammers; suggesting lines to feed them, providing fake documents to send them.
Now if only he could do something about all the tele-sales people that call me right when I'm eating or at the good part of a movie.
