I hope the feds show no mercy to this scum of the earth.
Via the Seattle Post-Intelligencer,
The Seattle man is accused of illegally clogging the planet’s inboxes with billions of illegal e-mails using hijacked computer networks.
You’ve probably heard from him, federal authorities say. Many times.
And with his arrest, you could see an immediate decrease in the amount of spam e-mail in your inbox, they said.
One expert estimated that the man agents dubbed the “Spam King” when they arrested him Wednesday sent billions, perhaps even tens of billions, of e-mails a day.
On just two groups of servers, in just a few months, federal investigators found more than 200 million spam messages linked to 27-year-old Robert Soloway.
Let’s face it, in the context of the events of the world today, Soloway’s crime is not earth-shattering. He didn’t kill anyone. He didn’t enslave anyone.
And yet, he’s probably in the top 20 most hated human beings on the planet.
More below the fold, as usual.
