Mohaha! Jeremy Jaynes was sentenced to nine years in prison today for spamming. He is the first spammer to go to the Big House. This makes The Core Dump very happy indeed.
Unfortunately, the sentence has been deferred until some more legal machinery wrangling can take place, so let’s all cross our fingers that it really happens, and that he gets Bruno for a cell mate.
Having just read through Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle, with its encyclopedia of horrendous punishments doled out during the baroque era, it strikes me that perhaps drawing and quartering should be brought back, but only for spammers?
