An anti-spammer recently boasted of having sent email with the subject line "Your sister was in a car accident" as an attention-grabber to an administrative address at an ISP that had been unresponsive to his previous complaints. He received a furious response from a staffer who in fact had a sister and had been momentarily terrified. Posting the exchange to news.admin.net-abuse.email, the spam-fighter remarked, "I don't feel that people who are conspiring to aid and protect someone that is harassing me deserve any mercy."
