Meaning that you probably should contact AOL and get them to nail that
spammer wannaby before he does any more harm.

Another "nice" thing to do would be to mail-bomb him with illicites IP
addresse (take your pick in the various private IP range, reserved IPs
and add some AOL mail servers for good measures) in order to pollute
it's data.

Good luck,
