Jeremy Jaynes of Raleigh, North Carolina, a prolific spammer who operated using the alias 'Gaven Stubberfield' and was listed by Spamhaus' ROKSO database as being the 8th most prolific spammer in the world, has been convicted of spamming using deceptive routing information to hide the source. A Virginia court recommended Jaynes spend nine years in prison for sending hundreds of thousands of unwanted e-mail messages. Virginia Attorney General Jerry Kilgore said Jaynes was found guilty under a Virginia state law that prohibits e-mails marketers from sending more than a certain amount of spams within a given time frame and prohibits the use of fake e-mail addresses.

Jaynes' sister, Jessica DeGroot, was also found guilty and fined $7,500. An associate, Richard Rutkowski of eVictory Consulting (known to Spamhaus as being involved in "National Wealth Builders" spamming), was found not guilty.

A Loudoun County jury decided that Jeremy Jaynes, 30, and his sister Jessica DeGroot, 28 flooded tens of thousands of AOL email accounts with unsolicited email. The jury recommended that Jaynes spend nine years in prison and that DeGroot pay $7,500 in fines for violating Virginia's anti-spam law.

Although both Jaynes and DeGroot lived in North Carolina, Virginia asserted jurisdiction because they sent messages through server computers located in the state.

Yeah it's good to see that something is being done about spam, I get way too much of it and it's a waste of my time deleting it from my mailbox.

fuck spam.

but 9 years in prison for sending out annoying emails? that's just harsh. I would say a big ass fine & some community service...but prison time for non-violent offenses is just unnecessary and serves little purpose.

I mean, come on - it's not hard to avoid spam...dont give out your email address to just anybody (or have a garbage email address) or use www.dodgeit.com or use Thunderbird (or any other competent email client)....I never get spam.

I say it's about Goddamn time.

They aren't providing a 'service' to anyone, they're sending a bunch of junk to massive amounts of people in order to make money.

Good, send them to jail, send them to jail for the rest of their lives. They're inconveniencing, and wasting huge amounts of people's time from sending out this shit.

They know they're doing it too.

:lol: how pissed off was that jury? i mean, they must all be AOL subscribers, cause 9 years is freakin harsh... some states dont even give that much for murder....

this just proves that spam is more annoying that someone dying.

Im guessing they make alot of money out of it. "Companies" pay them to advertise there "product", the more people they reach the more money they  make of out it. 
:spammer:

9 years is what they deserve.. but not a bad way to earn a living, wish i had thought of that  :smirk:

And it's very cost effective. You can send out thousands of spam e-mails, and even if you only get a few people to buy, you'll still come out ahead, cost-wise. Yes, some people actually DO buy get rich quick schemes and penis enlargemant pills. It's sort of sad, really...

...and that is precisely the problem. the US locks up non-violent criminals entirely too often. I'm surprised someone with the pretense of "information revolution" and all that would support such draconian laws and their enforecement (but then again, you do support the banning of Swami...)

kill your inner cop, bro.
your authoritarian tendencies are growing.

nearly a decade for sending out email? you obviously have never served time or visited a prison before...those places should be reserved for the violent rapists and murderers among us...not public nuisances.

by this logic mcdonalds, walmart, staples, future shop and so on should get soem hefty time in jail.  fuck i hate sitting through commercials on TV or getting advertisements in teh mail/e-mail, or having billboards on the road.  cause ya know, im FORCED to deal with them :rolleyes:

this is BS in my eyes, as annoying as it may be to some.  dont you think coke advertising and having exclusives in public schools is a little more wrong than having to tick a box on the internet?

yes, and using their logic, those pizza delievery and home-cleaning companies should all be sentenced to a decade in federal prison for leaving their business flyers in our mailboxes everyday....
