    They mentioned his 'spam-king' method of earning a living last night on the olympic telecast.

    Didn't realize he was into spyware stuff.

    Yeah, I caught that part, too. No wonder he avoids the press. He might get hit with questions about the way he made his fortune and, at the same time, cost millions of people and businesses countless time and $$$ in lost productivity.

    If I recall, they mentioned this last winter olympics too. I bet he has plenty of time to train, living off all his ill-gotten gains.

    I have one question, Drewbert,

    That link goes to a page with a February 16th, 2006 article...
    Dale Begg-Smith & AdsCPM: A Spyware low life Criminal Distributor wins an Olympic Gold Medal for Australia
    What's new (2010), about that guy?

    That he's still allowed to compete in the Olympics 4 years later and have kids look at him as a role model?

    Thanks for the answers!

    The reason for my question was because the first link was from an old 2006 article, and I didn't see, or care to search for what that guy was doing now...

    It's very bad to see that some people can get away with doing bad deeds, and still get away with it... and get famous and praised, by some that never have been affected directly by those evil doers...

    But, it's what it's: "Those that don't remember the past..."
