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 could notice a decrease in the amount of junk e-mail.
Robert Alan Soloway is accused of using networks of compromised “zombie” computers to send out millions upon millions of spam e-mails.

Wow, RS! Death for spamming? Seems a little severe. If you ever become a cop, remind me to move to another town. "She spit on the sidewalk! Cut out her tongue!" "She's driving 2 miles over the speed limit! Shoot out her tires!" I don't know what the laws are like in Russia but we don't kill people for spamming in America. (At least not this week. Laws are changing all the time.)
