JK> Although said in jest... I'd not recommend doing that, ever. Two reasons:
JK> You won't really hit the person you want, as they can just switch to another

Not counting the fact that you might be hitting the wrong target: it
might well be that woah at aol.com is an innocent user that someone tries
