Spammer Claims that he is a Victim
Laura Atkins reports on an article from the SJ Mercury News, where, for some odd reason, a spammer is given a platform to cry about how Spamhaus hates him. I don't quite understand, as it is Godaddy who suspended the guy's service. Maybe Spamhaus isn't the only organization out there that hates spam? Most internet service providers and email service providers would shut this guy's access off in a heartbeat, after learning that he's purchasing lists. Why? Because it's spam. But it's legal? OK, it's legal, but irrelevant. It's still spam.
