Alleged Spammer Charged
Welcome news, if the accusation is true:
A 27-year-old man described as one of the world’s most prolific spammers was arrested Wednesday, and federal authorities said computer users across the Web might notice a decrease in junk e-mail.
The charges, however, seem like overkill.
Last week, a federal grand jury returned a 35-count indictment against [Robert Alan] Soloway charging him with mail fraud, wire fraud, e-mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and money laundering.
Couldn't he just be charged with being an incredible nuisance? And sentenced to spend the rest of his life deleting spam emails from our mailboxes?
