I agree. This is unethical. So is sending spam. I suggest that one would
send two copies of spam back for each copy recieved. This is not as
unethical b/c one was spammed and one is only returning the favor. If the
spammer is manually sending out emails and gets a few replies back then
this won't cause any trouble. But if one sends out unsolicited mail to a
few million people and they get a few million back then they get what they
dished out, tit for tat. If you are the only one sending mail back then
it's not that much of a problem for other people so you are taking the law
into your own hands.

BTW, I thought, 'going postal' had a few meaning all of which could be
true and thus it created a pun which made a very good feeling in my mind.
