I hate spammers. I love it when these jerks are caught.
Personally, I don't believe in the death penalty—not on humanitarian grounds (though those reasons have merit) but because I just DO NOT believe a government should have the right to execute its citizens, from whom it ostensibly derives its power. But in Tim's Perfect World, I would reserve capitol punishment for three High Crimes: those who spam, those who commit treason, and people who talk in the theater.
