Still not convinced that spammers are the scum of the earth? Try this: some poor guy tries to opt out of a spammer’s mailing list and instead gets sued and spammed by the culprit. That’s right, cruise.com not only sued him for defamation and copyright infringement (???) but keeps on sending him junk mail. God! What filthy steenking bastards.
Imagine asking a corporation to stop spamming you and instead of honoring your request, it sues you in federal court and continues to send the same unwanted, junk email you asked it to stop sending in the first place. This is precisely what happened to Mark W. Mumma, a web hosting and email service provider in Oklahoma City. A suit was filed against Mumma in the U.S. District Court’s Eastern District of Virginia on Feb. 8 by suspected spammer cruise.com, its parent company and the parent’s principals.
