Bob Soloway arrested

One of the most annoying and prolific spammers ever has been arrested.

This guy owns a business called NIM, NPR and many other names and his trademark spam was the one beginning:
email advertise like this to 8,000,000 people this week for free..

Though it wasn't just annoyance, this guy has screwed up lives and businesses:

The false headers he put on emails led many people to have their legitimate email addresses or domains blacklisted by anti-spam groups.
The authorities are seeking a USD772,000 fine which is probably chickenfeed to him. A fairer punishment I think would be to fine him every last cent he made from his vile business.
