For people following at home, automating the reporting of spam is
discouraged. A fair number of people manage to report either their own
ISPs or mails they've actually signed up to receive (for example,
this list server has been blacklisted a few times), so you'll need to
be careful as to what you report, unless you know what you're doing.
