i assume that is correct procmail syntax, ive never tried forwarding
mail with procmail before.

but as far as whether sending there spam back to them is a good or
evil idea i would venture to say it does not matter since i would bet
a nickel there is nobody reading root's mail on that server.

there is probably 100000 messages sitting in /var/mail/root (or more
likely C\WINNT\PROFILES\ADMINITRATOR\MAIL or wherever NT puts mail...)  

people have already sent complains to webmaster, postmaster and abuse
among others and have been ignored, its safe to assume nobody reads
mail for those accounts either (they probably aren't even pointed at a
real account like there supposed to)

oh well, such is life for the rest of us when clowns get the root
password and are called sysadmins.
