For the last couple of weeks, I have been inundated with email spam from CNN. It’s called “The Daily Top 10″ which comprises some of the top stories featured at CNN. The ironic thing about this is that I did not subscribe to this. In fact, I don’t even watch or read CNN – I get my main news from Fox News.
Another email spammer gets slapped on the wrist! Ryan Pitylak, an individual who is know as the world’s fourth most-prolific spammer, has settled a lawsuit with Microsoft and the state of Texas which accused him of sending up to 25 million e-mails per day. The settlement cost Ryan Pitylak 1 million dollars, as well as the seizure of many of the assets he accumulated during a short-lived career as one of the world’s worst spammers. No jail time? No lifelong banning of access to the Internet?
A company called Planet Target has been email spamming me and my staff to death as of late. I’m sure we are not the only ones. Email spam is irritating enough but when the same message comes again and again, it kind of boils my pot. So why not use to power of blogging to warn others of email spammers unscrupulous and invading tactics?
