Sample letter for moderators cutting off spam sitesThis is an example of a letter you might send to administrators of a rogue site when you cut off submissions from their subscribers. This is a way of bringing pressure to bear on the management of the spam site to get the spammers shut down.

To the badsite people & moderators,
I am sick of the amount of e-mail spam that is originating from your site. I am one of the moderators of group name here, a very popular newsgroup. If the e-mail spam does not cease from your site, I will alias you out of the newsgroup and no longer accept submissions from your users. I will also urge the other moderators to do the same thing.
AOL has managed to do a pretty good job at reducing the spam originating from its site. I suggest you get in touch with them and do the same thing.
