Sanford Wallace, generally credited* with modern spam**, the scourge of the Internet, is at it again. This time, MySpace is suing him. I’m quite mystified why someone hasn’t given him a pair of cement shoes and thrown him over a bridge. Like many things in life, just because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s right. Now he’s making fake profiles on social-networking sites to lure people to spam sites on the net.
Having battled Spamford Wallace and CyberPromo myself back in the Pro-Entropy days, I am definitely on MySpace’s side. They’ve got just as much money as AOL did and they have a good chance of winning. I hope he suffers anal violation in prison by an HIV positive masochistic guy who’s built like a pro-wrestler.
*I don’t mean this in a good way, obviously.
