I actually responded to their web form, just that once and notified 
them of my future intention of automatically blocking their 
individual offending IPs. I'm still reporting to their abuse address. 
If they want to ignore me.. fine. I've also reported to spam at uce.gov 
so that it is documented (not that anyone there pays attention 
either, but I hope that someone does a tally at the end of a 
day/week/month/quarter to see who is most misbehaved).

I also email anyone else who will listen, like phishing at . Maybe their 
lawyers will take head.
