Spammer to pay MySpace millions in damages:

I call it ironic only because MySpace is definitely on my personal hit parade of websites to avoid. I can't help but smile at a spam-scammer having to dish out to a adware server. Wink

Ole Scott Ricter, huh... long time big spammer. $6 million is a lot of money, but I think some of these guys ought to do time in a cell with Bubba. Twisted Evil

I like your suggestion Suzi, he's spammed more than My Space... which is a site I also avoid...... like the plague.

Thanks for the info datababe.
