Chasing spam [Lurks]

I must have had some spare time on my hands because in early December when I received some spam regarding, I got incensed enough that they cloaked their activity in a shroud of legitimacy that I reported the offenders (some outfit called traffic4biz) to the Information Commission's Office. This being the government body which is charged with enforcing spam.
I had to fill in a form and gather actual company information about the people sending me spam and then after sending all this off didn't hear another word. So much for that then. But today I just got a letter, just shy of two months after the fact including their 'sincerest apologies for the late reply' and all because of the large volume of correspondence apparently.

From the information provided, it would appear that you did not give you prior consent to receiving the emails in question. I have therefore written to Traffic4Biz Limited reminding them of their legal obligations and seeking their assurances that your email address will be suppressed from their marketing lists. I would expect this to take no more than 28 days. If you receive any further emails from them I would be grateful if you could let me know.

Oh well, I bet them spammers are shaking in fear.
