Spam Wars To Turn Deadly?

from the that's-a-bit-extreme dept

MSNBC is taking a look at the increasing hostility going back and forth between spammers and anti-spammers and even has someone predict that at some point, someone is going to get killed over spam. That seems a little extreme. On the other side, they quote a spammer who says he’ll die for his right to spam, and concludes that he could be the “Martin Luther King” of the spam movement. That there’s a big difference between MLK fighting for civil rights, and him fighting for the right to invade your email box, doesn’t seem to occur to him.
