Same here. I had collected about 4500 when I started using procmail
filters. I had to add more subject lines almost every day because I
wanted to see legitimate bounces and filter only those the Spammer
The filter collected 17000 more bounces before the Spammer ceased using
my name. So I was more fortunate than you:
1) This ran over weeks, not in a few days.
2) There where only a quarter of your bounces.
I educated quite a few people who sent remove requests about the dangers
of doing that. The best one was this:
REMOVE ME FROM YOUR MAILING LIST NOW OR ELSE I WILL HAVE TO REPORT
YOU THE WEB ADMINISTRATOR
Oooohhh, I'm scared...
