Omaha Steaks is offering 40 percent off steaks and six free hamburgers to netizens who help fight unsolicited commercial email by forwarding their spam messages to the Spam Recycling Center (SRC).

The SRC, sponsored by a coalition of anti-spam organizations, is a consumer-oriented anti-spam resource that collects spam and forwards it to the Federal Trade Commission to aid in the fight against email fraud.

Also available through the SRC are free anti-spam technologies, information about pending anti-spam legislation, links to anti-spam organizations and educational materials and links about the detrimental effects of spam on the Internet as a whole.

The SRC began operation in May and is sponsored by a coalition of anti-spam public interest groups and e-commerce organizations including ChooseYourMail.com, the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email, the Forum for Responsible and Ethical Email and SAFEeps.

“Spam makes netizens angry, but they feel powerless to do anything about it. That is why we started the SRC, to give netizens a voice in the fight against spam. But we also wanted to offer netizens something of value in return for their effort,” said Ian Oxman, SRC co-founder and president of ChooseYourMail.com. “That is why Omaha Steaks is the perfect retail sponsor for the SRC. Now anyone can grab a beverage, throw a steak on the grill and stick it to a spammer.”
