LOL, now I suppose this could be good news ? But I'll believe it when I see it.. a decrease in the amount of spam I receive... that is.

It's early, and I'm talking like Yoda, I am.

I have my doubts, but it would be nice to see the spam go away.

Spammers are like drug lords. You capture one, and two come in to fill his place. The only thing to stop drug lords would be if people stopped buying drugs. Likewise the only thing to stop spammers is for people to stop buying spammed products. Likewise if people stopped buying stolen goods, thieves would have no market to sell into.

LOL, what is worse? A spammer in control over 1000's of zombie computers? Or the government in control over 1000's of zombie computers? I wouldn't be surprised if the amount of spam actually goes up! Now that the king-pin is out of the way, it opens up the doors to a new crop of wannabe king-pins. Sorry if I'm a bit cynical. But the flow of spam is like the flow of illegal aliens. It ain't gunna stop anytime soon. The illusion of "busts" is meant to justify their department budgets and convince us to keep paying our taxes for a job well done.

We do not have "much" of a choice about taxes and the government would love to have more control of the people and they would love to tax every email sent too. Big Brother will get his fair share

Getting rid of spam is easy, just get rid of stupid people that buy the stuff it advertises.
