    Now they need to go after the people that bought the information from them...

    That would help a lot.

    I actually really really like this one. Spammers are pretty much as low a lifeform as you can get on the net.

    Why? You can do just as much damage on a 28k connection as you can a 100M connection. They're not actually sending the mails out themselves, they're using their botnets.

    12,000 responses.

    Take those people's computers away and maybe you'll put a dent in spam. As long as people respond to spam, there will be spam.

    There'll always be desperate foolish people though. There is no malice in them. There is greed and selfishness in the people who send them out though, and for that reason they are the ones to go after.

    The way that russian spammer got stopped last year(IIRC) was the best way devised yet, and it's a shame more aren't stopped the same way.

    Hey, I can name one thing that was good that came from spam.... the X10 camera. I never bought one myself, but I've seen several and those damn things were a steal.
