    Hooray! I'm glad they caught this guy. I think I'll e-mail Smith right now and tell him what a low opinion I have of him. What's his e-mail address?

    Glad that one of the more prolific spammers (18 million in one year :eek: ) has been caught. And like stubeef, I hope that he does get sent to federal pound'm in the *** prison... :rolleyes:

    I hope he does time, and I hope some fellow prisoners cram his outbox...if you get my drift. ;)

    If he is responsible for the multiple messages that I receive about drugs daily, good to see that he's nabbed. It certainly sounds like there is a lot of money to be made in this venture. Hopefully his girlfriend won't continue the same work.

    So far the arrest of this spammer hasn't decreased the amount of drug messages that I'm receiving. Either they were already in the pipe line, they aren't from him, or a new person has taken over. :( :eek:

    Duff-Man says....this is just one scumbag out of countless and is not likely to make more than just a trivial difference for a few days, if even that. Until *all* countries and ISP's decide to get tough with these useless twirps then it is going to be business as usual.....oh yeah!

    I'm not so sure about that. I thought I read that a remarkably few number of spammers were responsible for a large percentage of spam. Does anybody know with more certainty whether there really are hundreds or thousands of mass spamming operations, or whether they are really coming from a few dozen main sources?

    Duff-Man says....I don't have specific numbers to quote, but this is certainly not the first story of "top spammer nabbed" that we have ever seen and the amount of spam has kept increasing anyway...it is obviously such a lucrative "business" to get into that it is bound to attract more than just a handful of "hardcore spammers".....oh yeah!

    Note that Smith was not arrested for spamming, but for selling drugs illegally. When spammers are apprehended, it's usually for some other criminal activity. They guys are really just old-fashioned con artists with a new gig. And yes, the money in fraud can be huge, which is why they do it (duh!). Read "Spam Kings" by Brian McWilliams for the lowdown on this new breed of old scumbag. Opened my eyes, that's for sure.
