I'm not sure quite how to feel. On the one hand, when someone gets beaten to death in his own apartment, that's a bad thing. On the other hand, when that person happens to be someone responsible for sending spam to 14 million Internet users, well ... If you're not asking for a deadly beating, you must at least know you're at risk for some serious wedgies.
Apparently over in Russia, where the beating occurred, there were no such mixed emotions. Headlines there included “An Ultimate Solution to the Spam Problem,” “The Spammer Had it Coming" and “Ignoble Death Becomes Russia’s Top Spammer." Which tells you one thing: Russia needs a good New York Post. (Suggested headline: "WHAM, BAM -- NO MORE SPAM!") We can be thankful that the old Pravda's gone, though. ("Spammer happy and healthy, salutes Soviet ingenuity.")
So the question remains: Should spammers be put to death? The jury is still out, but the way I see it, if I get one more Cialis ad, no jury in the land would convict me.
