$11.2 billion fine for Spam Man
1/10/2006 6:56:22 PM
A Florida man accused of sending huge volumes of spam has been fined an unprecedented $11.2 billion by a US district court. A lawsuit filed two years ago by the owner of a small Iowa-based ISP, CIS Internet Services, alleged that James McCalla had sent out more than 280 million spam e-mails with return addresses pointing to CIS. The judgement handed out just before Christmas prohibits McCalla from accessing the Internet for three years, in addition to fining him a nominal sum as punishment for every e-mail he is alleged to have sent.

Wow, hope he can pay it. That should take care of some of the national debt! Seriously, I hate spam, but I hate the creators of malware even more. Let's catch some of them and hang them up by their toes, or something else that would be extremely uncomfortable. Cheri

Hi Doug, Hey, it's good to see a big spammer getting a big bite taken out of him, but I have to admit I'm really with Cheri on this one! Let's stick it to the malware and spyware guys! God bless, Dave
