Um...

First of all, my spam filter blocked the message so I would never have been
bothered by it if you hadn't POSTED IT AGAIN...

Second, the message contains URLs of the advertised site; this is the
easiest type of spam to deal with. Do a traceroute. Complain to the
ISP hosting the site and their upstream provider. Enough complaints and
the spammer gets disconnected from the net, losing any potential profits
from their spam and maybe some legitimate sales as well, if it is a
legitimate business, and realizes that spam doesn't pay. Maybe they
refuse to pay the bulk emailer or at least give them a hassle. The
world moves a tiny step toward being spam free.

Third, let's followup to, um, news.admin.net-abuse or whatever.
