Ahhh, revenge is SWEET!


Last week, AOL announced it had confiscated a Porsche Boxster S convertible as part of a settlement with a spammer who made more that $1 million from sending unwanted junk e-mail. The company launched a sweepstakes for the car on March 30 as " a gesture of support and thanks" to its members for their help in the fight against spam.

He did, but if he had to pay for sending his mail he wouldn't have made 20% of what he did. Guys like him cost the rest of us, soon we will have to pay for email. Hopefully we will have some sort of quota included with our regular fees. Bad thing is whenever there's a revenue stream it's easy for the government to add a tax. Like our phone & cable bills don't have enough taxes already.
