Shut Down John Zuccarini's Websites

from the now-if-they-could-only-find-him dept

The FTC has ruled that 5,500 of John Zuccarini's websites must be shut down. Zuccarini is the guy who registers thousands of misspellings of domain names and then points them to porn and gambling and advertisements using various javascript tricks to keep you from going back. Reuters, who wrote the article says they tried to contact Zuccarini for comment, but he didn't respond. I'm wondering if anyone can find him at all. Remember, Zuccarini is the guy who refuses to tell anyone where he lives and tends to simply ignore court cases against him.
