    10 million e-mails a day


    and I feel bad when I send out a 1,000 in a month... geez.
    9 years seems awfully excessive but maybe it takes something like this to keep the CRAP out of my inbox...

    Nine years isn't long enough for anyone who sends UNSOLICITED e-mails..
    Spammers need to be put away.

    Now if they would just make it the DEATH PENALTY to do drive by installs...
    THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE!

    Prosecutors have described Jaynes as among the top 10 spammers in the world at the time of his arrest, using the name "Gaven Stubberfield" and other aliases to peddle junk products and pornography. Prosecutors say he grossed up to $750,000 per month.
    Guess that is why people still do it - probably see themselves as invincible. Glad to know he got caught!
