It is up to the people to self regulate.

Self regulate is NOT self retaliate.

And if the spammers don't like my packets being sent to their
system, all they have to do is send me a polite e-mail asking to be
removed from my flood-list. It is really quite simple!

Then, what will you do when (not IF) you'll receive X bazillions (say, one message per 100 packets send) polite emails requesting you to remove such-and-such random IP from your flood-list ? Will you really deal with all of those messages ?

I DO agree that strong measures should be taken against spammers. Legal ones, that is. No other way to keep a civilized society still civilized.
