Russian spammer found beaten to death
One of Russia's best-known spammers has been found beaten to death in his apartment in central Moscow, according to police reports.

I'm torn... On the one hand, he was a human being. On the other, he was a spammer. I'm had my own fantasies about traveling the world with a baseball bat, visiting spammers one by one.

The slashdot story has, in the comments, a ref to a translation of a Russian paper that indicates he picked up three girls at a bar. They went to his place, they roofied him, and he woke up while his place was being burgled by the girls' accomplices. So they clubbed him to death.

Sorry, not a new implementation of SpamAssassin.

I've had the same fantasy, only it was a tire iron.

I don't approve of vigilante killing...

...except in this case.
