Spammer Found Murdered

By on July 25, 2005

This seems a bit harsh:

Vardan Kushnir, notorious for sending spam to each and every citizen of Russia who appeared to have an e-mail, was found dead in his Moscow apartment on Sunday, Interfax reported Monday. He died after suffering repeated blows to the head.

  1. It was really just a matter of time, I think. Seriously.

    I thought, the other day, that I’d like to sit in a room with the guy from the casino sites (you know, because it’s just one guy…) and explain to him why spamming Gadgetopia is pointless (I block almost everything), and asking him where the hell he gets off doing this me and making me do so much extra work just to deal with his crap.

    Just thinking about that conversation rose my blood pressue 20 points. I think I got a little red in the face.

    I’m certainly not to the point of killing someone, but I will say that I feel definite hostility towards these people. I’m sure I can keep a lid on it, but apparently some people can’t.

  2. Dealing with all sorts of spyware on a daily basis makes me rethink my opposition to the death penalty.

  3. What you may want to do is to javascript your email address. To see what I mean see our site: Xbox Cheats and look at the page source.

    Trust me … It works. We have about 100 email addresses protected that way and they don’t get spammed.

    Spammers don’t care if anyone is pissed off and some actually make a point to try to piss people off. Even if they know you block their spam they will still send spam.

    Case in point: spammers must know that major ISP Earthlink blocks a huge amount of the Drug spams, yet every day …. I see about 200 new ones in my Earthlink “known spam” folder.

    Multiply that by the millions of Earthlink customers and that is a lot of waisted resources.
