    What is the point of the sentence if he is not gonna serve it? What is the point of the judge claiming that the law he enforced is "invalid". I guess I really do not understand the point. The entire thing was obviously a waste of time and tax payer money. The outcome is symbolic if anything.

    He will probably have a hard time renting a car and won't be able to travel to Canada. Thats probably about it ;)

    and that, my friend , IS the point. The next time around the lawyers will be better prepared as well and someone is going to fry. This guy got lucky but I bet him and many others had a few sleepless night over all this.

    Renting a car, I don't need. But not being able to travel to Canada would be devastating. :D

    Seriously, I love Canada, especially Old Montreal.

    extract of http://www.webpronews.com/news/ebusinessnews/wpn-45-20050411SpammerGets9YearSentence.html

    This guy made $24 millions at a rate of $750,000 a month... he may get 9 years IF it's legal and IF he doesn't run away... with 24 millions in his pocket and as he is free waiting for the appeal...

    This guy should be in jail and his money distributed to victims.

    t'was just my Wednesday rage, let's go back to work trying to make an honest living.

    Some (french words) wanted to purchase the domain name and we said thanks but no thanks.

    The guy bombarded our site with junk malformed requests rejected by the firewall. It overloaded the server who crashed and rebooted and crashed and rebooted all day long. We were obliged to shut it down until we found a way to disard IPs he was using (we found 50 of them from 10 countries).

    When we put the server online again, he came back and tried to hack it with hate message on home page.

    It was funny as he (or she in fact) was on one side using one IP, we were on the other side seeing that IP making abnormal requests like: /index.html?run:command.... and we were blocking that IP. It lasted days until he ran out of IPs :)) we caught 96 IPs we reported.

    It was an experience... our bandwidth jumped to 250Gb my blood pressure to the sky and my engineer coffee comsumption to 10 gal a day :p
