AIM spam

to everybody that uses AIM.. has anybody gotten AIM spam similar to this:

End Your Chat Room Hunt. Go on a Real Date Tonight, Guaranteed! Local People Just Like You Are Looking For Sex at zsfiljmkuoiuihAdultMatchMaking.ca.ttnijfmgmswwp

i know quite a few people that have been getting these too.. its so freakin annoying.. i get them like every 30 minutes from different random s/ns and every one of the websites being promoted use frames i think and just point to a site called addresshookup.com which automatically installs some kinda software on your computer without your consent.. im assuming its some kinda software that allows them to jack peoples AIM accounts to send out more of their spam... addresshookup.com is hosted by Yahoo... anybody know how to complain to the FTC about this.. ive tried complaining to Yahoo but of course they dont do anything about it...

That would just make me stop using AIM.

Why stay if they don't care?
