A feel good article in Ars Technica:

[arstechnica.com...]

It talks about how a major spammer (seemingly he ran 190 mail servers just for spam!) was targeted by SlashDot readers who got his home address. They signed him up for every brochure, ad and catalogue they could find. He complained that he was a target of harrassment! ;)

Sweet revenge if you ask me!

i think it's nice too, but you see the guy has already become a millionare, in what way did we 'get' him? none, he's probably on hawai, controlling his spam servers from there, and enjoying the good life, and laughing out loud.

That made my day. They should track down the top 150 spammers...I bet some of them would quit.

I wonder if it really will affect the saleability of that house.

Its better that he got like hard copy spam rather than a shed load of unwanted emails cos you can delete them. But this way he has to physically remove every item of unwanted mail, and sift through the masses for actual important mail that he did want. Just goes to show that what goes around comes around.
