One of the world's biggest spammers lives in the Detroit area. A couple of weeks ago, the Detroit Free Press ran a story on him:
The story consisted of him gloating about his new $750,000 house, and talking about the spamming operation he ran from there. The reporter who wrote the story was devious enough to leave a few clues as to the spammer's new address, and, when the story showed up on Slashdot, several folks took it upon themselves to use those clues to figure out his address.
Now it seems the spammer has been signed up for every catalog, get-rich-quick scheme and free sample possible.
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
