Yeah, come down hard on 'em. Yesterday I read that here in Oz, spammers are starting to get arrested, and face million-dollar-a-day fines.
Today I hear on the news that over in America, a repeat offender has just been jailed for nine years.
Should be a pretty good disincentive to others. Mind you, while they deserve harsh punishment, nine years might be a bit much. Then again, they're guilty of stealing our time (something so precious) and threatening to ruin the internet while they're at it.
SO, the beginning of the end for the spam industry?
