The protest itself is a simple sit-in in which you connect with the host and hold the connection for a random amount of time. Because web hosts can only provide a limited number of simultaneous connections, if enough people receive spam for that host, and protest, no other connections can get through. The occupy spam protest focuses on the web hosts the spammers depend on for their income. If you interrupt the spammer economy, spam stops. The program also generates a list of possible scam emails. These are the ones offering you outrageous sums of money for whatever reason. If you chose to protest this spam you can send a randomly generated email response. If the scammers receive too many protest emails they may not be able to find the responses from the suckers that might pay them.
