Lycos Europe's Spam-attacking screensaver just too popular

Lycos Europe's "Make Love Not Spam" screensaver is no longer available for download. The company has pulled the program temporarily while it "deals with hosting and management issues" brought on by the over 100,000 people who're using it. The screensaver apparently clogs the bandwidth of known spam sites, and is already credited with taking down two such sites in China.
