Maybe spamming will stop? One can only hope!
There was a local neutraceutical manufacturer around here that was recently raided by postal inspectors. It seems that while they haven't gotten them on spamming, they got them on mail fraud when they shipped products that didn't meet their claims. :rofl:
I can see it now. The DoJ/FBI must be monitoring our thread killer thread to spot potential spammers
"...prosecutors said Jaynes’ operation grossed up to $750,000 per month." Nnnnnnope--that's even better then selling drugs!
Ah-hah! I hadn't thought about importing smilies...
Glad they got him! Makes me wonder what the IRS will find...and you know they will look.

Who buys this stuff?
I would never buy, much less consume, anything from someone soliciting me over the internet.
Good riddance to bad rubbish. They should make him read every single e-mail he sent out.
The repsonse rate to spam is about 0.1% -- one in a thousand spam messages actually lead to a sale. It doesn't sound like a lot, but when you consider that some spammers can send billions of messages a day, it's more than enough.
Sort of like my success rate when I was trying to get a woman to date me. You have to play the numbers...
This month's Scientific American has a brief article on that by people who are working on it. I only skimmed it because I'm not really interested, but their conclusion is that you can't stop spammers if they're determined. They're taking the approach of making it not worth their trouble to succeed.
Yep, that's the one. :rofl: Except they didn't quite phrase it that way on the local news.
Interesting title to your post...if I might say...not meaning anything, just noticed, that's all... :uhh:
