A get to http://makelovenotspam.com/intl/static/ is what the screen
saver does initially.
I can not see this lasting long;
1) Whatever they say, they're breaking the law
2) They're DDoSing spammers, the people with millions of bots /
gigabits of bandwidth under their control.. we can see now that the
spammers have alread retaliated. I haven't been able to access
makelovenotspam.com for days.
