Robert Soloway


Robert Soloway is a serial abuser, who is fully described on Spamhaus. A couple of days ago, he was arrested and now looks likely to spend some time and possibly a long time in one of the United States finest prisons.

But will it make much difference?

Over the last few days, I've received 12, 14, 4, 9, 2, 15 and 0 e-mails from his company called the Email Broadcasting Company. At least I didn't get any yesterday, but thats a small drop in the 5-8,000 I get every day.

I doubt it. But at least the sentence he'll hopefully get will encourage others to stop. But not if they're in China, Russia or other democracies, where extradition would not be possible.
