Actually, I have never used an autodialler. I call collect until I get
bored of doing it. Usually, my main strategy is to contact the ISP. They
are usually very helpful.
I should mention though that sometimes the strategy can be a bit
stronger than intended. On one occasion, an ISP in the NW deleted an
entire company's e-mail accounts and web pages, due to one employee's
spamming activity. I bet that didn't do much for the persons employment
prospects. I felt slightly bad for the other employees though.
The goal here though is simple -- make the cost of spamming very high.
All the best,
