Unfortunately it is rare that the reply-to address on spam is actually
the spammer, so replying either goes nowhere or to some unsuspecting
recipient.  If it does get to the spammer then all a reply achieves is
to record your email address as still valid thereby potentially
increasing the amount of spam received.
