Death to Spammers

Stefan Tilkov,

Cameron Purdy commented on a CNN .com article about a programmer who threatened to kill and torture spammers and now, inexplicably, faces jail because of it.

You have got to appreciate the spammers sense of humour (emphasis mine):

He said his firm does not send spam but blamed a rival firm which he said routes much of their unsolicited bulk e-mail through Russia and eastern Europe. Mackay said such firms gave a bad name to the penis enhancement business.
