    'Spam King' escapes $20m fine - by $19.95m

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Richter, proprietor of 'email marketing' company - dubbed the world's second most prolific spammer by anti-spam organisation SpamHaus - had been in Spitzer's firing line for repeatedly breaking the terms of the 2003 CAN SPAM Act. So much so, Spitzer had publicly vowed last year to put the alleged spammer out of business and wipe out his profits.


    Spitzer said that if Richter broke the rules, he'd be back in court "facing greater penalties".

    Richter will now pay $40,000 in penalties and $10,000 in costs. A separate suit by Microsoft against Richter will carry on as planned. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Spitzer SUCKS!

    Ah well if there's anybody who can buy the justice they want, it's Microsoft, so Richter isn't out of the woods yet. Heheh.

    Well that definitely sends a loud and clear message and unfortunately not the right one.

    Dynamoo- Truer words have never been spoken, heh. I would really, really, really hate to be on the other side of the bench against a ticked off Microsoft.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.
