There are more and more sites on the net devoted to fighting spam. Be careful, though, as some are from companies that actually send out UCE themselves! One, TipMail@tntcomtec.com, sent out a lot of UCE with the title "Tip Mail" that pretended to be a free newsletter. They actually had a pointer in that newsletter to their "Anti-Spam Network" web site. The domain seems to be gone now, so apparently their upstream provider finally had enough of the complaints.
