This guy made a diabolical form to send spammers to password purgatory

Troy Hunt, creator of the useful Have I Been Pwned site, wanted to exact revenge on spammers who waste his time, so he created a form that wastes their time. When a spammer emails him, he replies by saying:

We look forward to exploiting the cross-platform mindshare together

Hunt receives automatic reports when a spammer falls for his trap:
