Judge Sentences Spammer to Nine Years

SFGate.com posted an AP news article entitled "Judge Sentences Spammer to Nine Years" that I found interested, particularly in light of my war on comment-spam of this week.

Here's a quick quote from the article:

[Jeremy] Jaynes, 30, who was considered among the top 10 spammers in the world at the time of his arrest, used the Internet to peddle pornography and sham products and services such as a 'FedEx refund processor,' prosecutors said. Thousands of people fell for his e-mails, and prosecutors said Jaynes' operation grossed up to $750,000 per month.

Also from the article:

Jaynes told the judge that regardless of how the appeal turns out, "I can guarantee the court I will not be involved in the e-mail marketing business again." He remains under $1 million bond.

Looks like nine years in prison can be an effective spam deterrent.
