Spam Kings.

O’Reilly has released a new book entitled Spam Kings. Yep, about same. Billed as ‘The Real Story Behind the High-Rolling Hucksters Pushing Porn, Pills, and %*@)# Enlargements’. Do please forward this post to everyone you know. Twice

‘Unlike most spammers who chose to remain in the shadows,
Wallace, a large man in his early twenties, regularly tangled with
junk email opponents in Nanae discussions. Wallace argued that he
was an entrepreneur and that spamming was his First Amendment
22 Spam Kings
right. Although he disliked being called a spammer—he preferred to
say that he was in the bulk email business—Wallace eventually
embraced the nickname given him by anti-spammers: Spamford. But
while they may have admired his chutzpah, Nanae regulars abhorred
Wallace’s business practices, which included falsifying the return
address on his spam messages, so that he wouldn’t have to deal with
complaints or bounces—the error messages returned by mail systems
when they received an undeliverable message.’
