I don’t usually link to other sites for a single post, population health but I thought this was worth noting. According to this article mentioned on Slashdot today, clinic a known spammer was savagely murdered in his home this weekend. I don’t know if it’s actually true, but if it is, I would like to extend my condolences to his family.
It must have been hard on them knowing their son was a spammer.
Although I certainly don’t advocate murder, I can’t say this surprises me. Investigators, legislators and the courts continue to ignore the public cry for stiff penalties against spam operators (and believe me, I’ve been crying for months now). Apparently, somebody has now taken it upon himself (or herself) to administer his (or her) own penalties.
Even I have to admit the perpetrator may have overreacted, but… I can’t really say I’ll miss the victim, either.
Spammers really should stop.
