I hope this kind of thing keeps happening. I usually rant against ridiculous lawsuits and call our legal system "idiotic," but every now and then they get one right.
A federal judge has awarded a Clinton Internet service provider over $1 billion in a lawsuit against companies that used the service provider's equipment to send spam, the Quad-Cities Times reported Saturday.
Good. It's about time.
Spam has become more than just a nuisance anymore. Spammers have mutated into internet terrorists who crash servers and corrupt web-sites with their incessant bombardment of ads for porn sites, Texas hold-em poker and drugs online. The maggots are thieves and vandals--- and they need to be treated as such.
What is the REAL difference between a spammer using my bandwidth as his personal free bulletin board and that same bastard stealing MY lawn mower to cut HIS grass? NONE, in my book.
Find 'em, fine 'em and lock 'em up. Assholes.
