we're gonna need all new kinds of jails to house these social criminals. Spam senders? Music pirates? Matress tag ripper-offers?!

Can we be both free AND safe?

Sending a spamer to jail isnt right. Just fine him or something. What has this country come to.

woohoo :D i get so much f#%king spam it's rediculous and it's always the same: buy prescription drugs online, get a bigger penis, viagra, mortgage rates at 1.95%, make money fast, and the occasional (sarcastic) porn site. these are some just some of the god damned junk emails i get everyday and atleast 25 of them. i even use the junk filter, so who knows how many i'm really getting. this is absolutely out of control!

enjoy your jail time you bastard ;)

and that's also exactally why people keep doing this sort of stuff... they think they can pay a fine (which is prolly small in comparison to what they make by sending the emails) and get on with it. kind of a wake up call for spammers...

and now that the sarcasm is out of the way, how about a little rationality?

dont be a dolt, everyone that breaks the law don't deserve jail time. the prison system would crumble if that was so.

At first I thought it to be a bit harsh but this is the eighth worst spammer in the world here. This is like the Osama Bin Laden of Spam!
But still... 20 years...
How's this for an idea (listen up gov.)
Instead of Jail time, take away their internet connection for X amount of years. I know that we can be considered fortunate to have access to the internet but after having it for so long could you imagine living without it for 30+ years???
Hopefully they don't consider it cruel and unusual...;)

Interesting to think what happens when someone serving a life sentence without parole for murder sits down in the mess next to someone sent to jail for spam. He asks, "So...what're you in for?"

first of all, no personal attacks... i just might take it personally. second of all, as i said in my second post, it's a wake up call for those that believe that they will only get a fine and go on with the same activities, and would normally recover the money lost to the suit in short order. that solves jack (and by jack, i mean squat). i say bravo - you don't need to send them all to jail, not even for 20 years. 1 month i imagine would get him thinking a little bit, and only to the worst of the worst...

but i suppose that's somehow irrational?

of course, if that grandma has 30 speeding tickets, it might just be a good idea to do something more than give her another ticket. read the article...

" Jaynes, who uses the alias Gaven Stubberfield, ranks as the eighth-worst spammer in the world, according to the anti-spam watchdog group Spamhaus"

There are other methods of punishing non -violent criminal other than jail time. This isn't a 3rd world county.

So what he's the 8th worst spammer in the world, I read the article. He could be the #1 spammer in the world, but as Jhonny C. says, the time fit the crime.
