Quote of the Day - It is with our judgments as with our watches; no two go just alike, yet each believes his own.
Works like a charm.
Probably even better than this $1 billion judgment. Here's the deal. A federal judge in Iowa awarded an ISP company a one billion dollar judgment against some 300 spammers for flooding the ISP with 10 million emails a day.
That's a cool 10 bucks per spam email. Not bad for a day's work.
But what do you think of the likelihood of collecting that judgment?
Right. I thought so. Zippo.
Great idea, and maybe it will cause other spammers pause, but hasn't this judge ever heard of bankruptcy? What does he think is going to happen?
The spammers are going to get their checkbooks out?
Ok, enough whining. How about a solution here? I would have tried seizure and forfeiture. Maybe even an injunction or two. But then again, a billion isn't too bad, either.
