Memories are resurfacing from the Cantor & Seigel greencard lottery
Usenet fiasco of the early 1990s. It's a shame that the internet
community of today is too fragmented to mount a focused retaliation like
it did with Cantor & Seigel.

One thing in particular that remember reading about was how someone took
a few sheets of black construction paper, and then ran them in a taped
together loop through their fax machine to the fax number of Cantor &
Seigel's office. He did this after normal business hours. That way the
attorneys would find a huge pile of all black faxes when they arrived to
work the following morning. Apart from tying up the fax line, it also
wasted their paper and a lot of toner.
