Sometimes they catch spammers

Sometimes, they do catch the bad-guys, and stop some of the spamming. Not often, but sometimes.

I was reading an article, the other day, where a judge has blocked a firm from using its internet pop-up ads to spam people. My first reaction was, about time too.

What is funny is that the owners of the company said they were only going to send one message a day to users. However, they had a database of 2 billion address to which they could send addressed.

Sadly, this is just one company. What of the other companies? They haven’t been brought to trail. :(

But, the good thing is, that browsers such as FireFox and Camino can be set to not automatically accept pop-ups. And, the software being used by these people worked with the Windows operating system.

Makes me happy I have a Mac.
