If You Want To Email-Bomb Your Ex-Employer In The UK, You Should Do It Soon

from the before-it's-illegal-and-all dept

Apparently a UK teenager who email-bombed his ex-employer has been cleared of all charges, after it turns out that he didn’t actually break the law he was charged under. Yup, it turns out that under the UK’s Computer Misuse Act, denial of service attacks aren’t really a crime — something politicians are hoping to change. So, the kid only needed to prove that his email bomb wasn’t “unauthorized access” and he gets off free.

So what, well done

TBH I think the kid should walk so what he sent a few email to some dumb ass corp, big deal. Get a life. The internet is here for fun not just corporate ass holes!

I think mail bombs are cool and believe each week 500,000 people should all mail bomb someone to show our internet freedom. Besides the internet wouldn’t be here if we all switched off!

Leeanne Jaud

I thought Leeanne Jaud was an actress but this chick doesnt look like her, I think she was the hot one in the new series of battlestar gallictica but this one in the photos is just some hag working in a tacky bar in Darwin apparently. Pretty gross. Found these as well:

For some reason those links dont work elmi.
I did find a couple of her that did, I have had trouble with flickcabin before, they dont like too much there:






Why you would want them I have no idea, she looks like absolute trash.

Against chance we found each other and we knew
I saw your face and felt your lips every moment we were apart
I was complete when I was close to you
I touched your hair, your skin, while you lay by my side
Hating sleep for it took me away from you
Hating sleep now for I dream of you and wake alone
Informing myself each new morning that you are gone
Thoughts of you cause my chest to explode
The blood tainting all those around me before I force it back and under control
A wound that wont seal and must be consciously stemmed
It meant everything to me and therefor I have lost everything
