damn spammers

A (or possibly many) spammer has started using my email address as the From: address for their spams.

Now, I've had this happen to me before - I've had the odd bounce. This was annoying but only a mild inconvenience. However, I am now getting a substantial volume of bounces caused by this forged email - about 200 a day for a few weeks. I could I suppose make a filter to filter out any bounces, but grr. I think I'm going to have to change my email address...

I'm not generally in favour of capital punishment, but I personally would like to hang spammers. Or shoot them. Or possibly decapitate them slowly with a cheese grater.
