Maybe there is a god.

Spammer gets Slammer (http://www.internetnews.com/xSP/article.php/3431221).

Yes, that'll teach the wretched geek a harsh lesson. I hope that the message gets through to the rest of his odious kind....

4 overnight spam e-mails, no doubt the nerds' revenge at the sentence handed out to this prick.

Blimey! Four spam emails! We get around four hundred a day over three accounts. If we're away for a week or so it's hundreds, sometimes thousands. My Mailwasher stats show in the last four weeks, legitimate mail 734, with 11,636 deleted.

Final figures for any period typically show 89% spam!

That's 4 which got through the filters. In other words, a significant increase no doubt resulting from the spite of these little nerds at the thought of their hero playing prison wife to Big Ron in the showers.....

Do these people never get any spam mail themselves that they don't know how irritating it is? Good to see a tough attitude being taken but I suspect that if we tried to jail them all we'd have to start building bigger prisons in a hurry! :rolleyes:

Agree with BEagle, four spams in one day would be a "bad spam day" for me. Average is about two.

Attach electrodes to their balls. That'll make them see sense.
If it doesn't, oh well, they won't breed. :E

I know it's a really sad thing (and I think it's been discussed here before), but how many people actually reply to these emails, especially the scam ones like "Send us $20 cash and we'll tell you the secrets of.................. " (Onan, that one's for you matey! ;) ).

There are some dumb people out there.

No, it's not a scam, Jerricho ... honest ... I really will send you the secrets of how to make big money, and my relatives in Nigeria will tell you it really, really works.

:rolleyes:

Redsnail,

During my current mid life crisis, electrodes might actually have a beneficial effect !:} ;)

According to the evidence presented at the trial, Jaynes, 30, and his sister, Jessica DeGroot, grossed more than $24 million


Seems to work to me too. How many ppl will look at the results and say, 9 years with free bed n breakfast and I get to keep $24M....... thats a good deal?

Rolex, Nigeria, Viagra, hehehe, why do they bother?

It costs no more to send their dumb sucker emails to a billion email addresses than it does to one. Working on the assumption that one person in a million is dumb enough to fall for anything, they don't really care that the other 999,999 people hate their guts. They run it out of a 6 x 4 box and laugh. And they get fined $7000?

Just remind yourself that most of the people who respond have the right to vote.

Well this i sthe whole thing about these bloody spam scams. The number of people who recieve the email or whatever is a large number indeed, and even if a small percentage replies it's significant enough to reap the benefits. I believe it's the same with Credit Card companies who send out thousands of pre-approvals. Of course, not everybody replies, but if a percentage do, that's where they make their money. What's that old addage "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is"

Onan, I would never insinuate you were one of those dummies. Perhaps just a little on the "easy" side. ;) :p

It's good to see that we can't post into Computer/Internet Issues and have a serious thread running with relevant posts.

Serious? Internet? Huh? Just doesn't sound right.
