MetaPhishing: I just got another phishing email "from" PayPal. My question is whether it might not be effective to go to whatever site it is and spam them with fake personal info. What if a lot of people did this?

I mean, suppose we could somehow create a "meme" for doing this. It seems to (not very bright) me that we might be capable of flooding their databases with useless information. But do they have ways of filtering out this kind of thing? Is this a stupid idea?
