Spammer Complies With CAN-SPAM, Claims ISPs Should Not Filter His Spam

from the all-the-better-to-annoy--you-with dept

Ronnie Scelson is one of the shortlist of spammers who just seems to love publicity. While many spammers like to hide away, Scelson’s always willing to talk. He testified before the Senate Commerce Committee today, claiming that he is now complying with CAN-SPAM, but threatened to ignore the law if not enough of his spam messages were getting through filters. He actually has the audacity to complain that now that CAN-SPAM is in effect, ISPs should be required to let his mail through. Maybe the filters are a little to thick around his head and the message isn’t getting through to him: the reason his spam is filtered is because people don’t want it.
