What about http://www.spamx.com looks like another spamx that is nearly 
identical to the hendrickson release.  Written in Java  Registered on 

Also http://freshmeat.net/projects/spamx/  which started Sep 30, 2002

Both of which appear to be open source or free. 

I should be flattered that the name I choose is so popular.

Maybe I should trademark pigstye and my little pig, since domain 
speculators have purchased pigstye.com, thepigstye.net and 
thepigstye.com and have them parked.  (The speculator tried to sell me 
pigstye.com a while back.)  Then I could demand they give me the 
domains, because they infringe on my trademark.
