If a funnier headline was submitted, why was this one chosen?
/doesn't understand it
 
2005-04-08 05:21:26 PM
Nice pre-emptive "I submitted this..."

Well played.
 
2005-04-08 05:21:49 PM
Actually, I submitted this with a bigger penis.
 
2005-04-08 05:21:53 PM
Damn right I did...
 
2005-04-08 05:21:53 PM
One more violent offender off our city streets.

Still no judgments against lying lawyers and graft-grubbing judges.
 
2005-04-08 05:21:59 PM
Whatever happened to headline voting?
 
2005-04-08 05:22:20 PM
Cool

One question it the spammer the hero or the judge?
 
2005-04-08 05:22:45 PM
finally an article about my hometown on Fark. Leesburg was actually the capital of the US for a few days during the war of 1812 or something.

Death is the only acceptable sentence...and not death by penis enlargement...just death.
 
2005-04-08 05:23:37 PM
MALLETED
 
2005-04-08 05:23:40 PM
Better hope Bubba the cellmate didn't order those enlargement pills.
 
2005-04-08 05:23:42 PM
Can you say TEH 8UTT R4P3?
 
2005-04-08 05:24:09 PM
Put the spammer in the slammer!
 
2005-04-08 05:24:39 PM
I reactivated totalfark because of headline voting. If it's not back in soonish I'm probably not going to renew.
 
2005-04-08 05:24:49 PM
I can handle spammers to an extent. I'm not saying I'm not glad he's in jail, but let's go after the spyware people. Anyone working for CoolWebSearch needs to be hanged in public.

It'd make an awfully funny shaped coffin if that was how they executed him, though...
 
2005-04-08 05:25:01 PM
How about the headline - Judge drops hammer - gives spammer slammer?
 
2005-04-08 05:25:30 PM
I hpe they put the bastard in the honeymoon suite. Ironic that he is convicted of SPAMMING, as he will undoubtedly take some meat in the can.

uclafalcon: Whatever happened to headline voting?

These days the Fark server's held together with Wrigley's, spit, and a prayer. Don't push your luck.
 
2005-04-08 05:27:42 PM
No I didn't.
 
2005-04-08 05:27:45 PM
Sentence deferred pending appeal. I guarantee you he won't see one minute of jail time.
 
2005-04-08 05:27:46 PM
Spammer - "Hi there, um... Rollo. Could I interest you in inexpensive viagra or the latest in penis enlargement?"

Rollo - "Don't need neither. Here, let me show you."

Spammer - "Ouch! My anus!"
 
2005-04-08 05:28:14 PM
Spam Me in the Ass prison?
 
2005-04-08 05:28:39 PM
Now if they could only find and convict the buttsniffer who programmed all those pop-up ads into that site.
 
2005-04-08 05:28:50 PM
Actually, I was gonna sub...nevermind.

CBC says this guy had $24 million from spamming. That's a lot of pen!s en_large_ments and \/iag_ra. It seems enough people buy shiat from spammers to make them a lot of money.
 
2005-04-08 05:28:56 PM
Judge sentences spammer to 9 years in prison. Will soon regret sale of penis enlargement pills.

/got nothing
 
2005-04-08 05:29:37 PM
Can you imagine going to prison and having to answer "spamming" when Bubba asks you what you're in for?

He's gonna make his cellblock a lovely bride.

Federal spam-you-in-the-ass prison?

AOL/Time Warner needs to be next...stuffing DoubleClick adware into their crap program. They're gonna love me when I cancel my account tonight...farking fascist pricks
 
2005-04-08 05:32:40 PM
Hmmmm


/writes down how much he made a month
//hope I one of the accomplices if we get busted

While it is juvenile and crude of me to think that people sending mass e-mail should spend time alongside murderers and rapists, let me just say:

I'm quivering with delight that a farking spamming assfark is behind bars. Maybe a few of the would-be spammers now think before pressing that Send button. I'm seriously overjoyed here, because spammers have so far firmly believed that they cannot be punished for what they have done and the great thing is that they cannot go underground and do the same thing illegally. So, being threatened with 9 years of involuntary anus enlargement may actually start to remove this particular type of crime.

Oh, and lorthos, you get a dose of clap from me... I mean, golf clap. Ahem.
 
2005-04-08 05:34:18 PM
Hmmmm


/writes down how much he made a month
//hope I am one of the accomplices if we get busted

I second that. I'll bring the rope, you string 'em up.
Then I'll recommend you get Firefox.

/Switched to linux because spyware pissed me off so much.
//Likes sentence fragments.
 
2005-04-08 05:35:10 PM
damn, some murders get less time than this kid... Judge must have gotten burned on peni-pills
 
2005-04-08 05:35:42 PM
You either kick somebodys ass on the first day or become somebodys biatch

/Oh, Oh

"I'm quivering with delight that a farking spamming assfark is behind bars."

Nobody is behind bars, his sentence is deferred pending appeal. Did you read the article?
 
2005-04-08 05:36:56 PM
They will win the appeal, and they intend to make it a constitutional challenge regarding free speech as well.

/discuss
//I make a living fighting spammers
 
2005-04-08 05:39:32 PM
F.N.A.

I skimmed it. The article sounded better before you pointed it the grubby little detail..

Spoilsport.

Does anyone find it interesting do get a pop-up ad when you view this story???? (yes, I have google and yahoo toolbar stoppers)
 
2005-04-08 05:42:05 PM
We are missing the bigger p3n1s, I mean picture here. The guy was making $750,000 a month doing this crap.
 
2005-04-08 05:43:00 PM
Putting a spammer behind bars is ludicrous.

I say wipe his bank account to zero, set him on the outskirts of town and give him a good kick in the ass.
 
2005-04-08 05:45:07 PM
It aint free speech to make other people suffer.

If the guy gets to the PMITA prison for 9 years, the JUDGE is the hero and worthy of the tag.
 
2005-04-08 05:48:55 PM
I submitted this with a link to cheap online pharmaceuticals.
 
2005-04-08 05:49:00 PM
Glorious. That's all there is to say about it.

No, wait, there's more. Putting agressively dishonest people in jail is good for us and hell for them. Spammers are nothing more than con-men, and they know it. Fark 'em.
 
2005-04-08 05:50:14 PM
Nightmaretony: It aint free speech to make other people suffer.

OK, then how about he takes all his money out of the bank in 20s and has to stand in downtown San Francisco and hand out money to the homeless...

Wait. That might cause a riot.
 
2005-04-08 05:51:50 PM
I really wanna see a follow up to this when the bastard walks!
(as a result of his appeal)
/about 10 years is a very reasonable sentence for this sort of violation.
//the law should also take away all of spammer's personal property.
///it should be an international law.
////give it another 40 years or so.
 
2005-04-08 05:55:03 PM
whidbey

Don't forget the tar and feathers. That's how a justice system should work. Quick, cheap, and effective.
 
2005-04-08 05:57:47 PM
While it would be nice to reduce the spam we all get, I'm a little uncomfortable with jailing them. I dunno. I give it a half hearted thumbs up.

But I agree wholheartedly about death by a44rape for spyware fukkers.
