I hate spam as much as the next guy, but I think 9 years in prison is a little tough on a guy who just sent out a bunch of emails.
According to the AP story, he defrauded a lot people with his spam-induced scams. Great, charge him with fraud. Doesn’t putting people in prison for annoying us with spam seem a little arbitrary?
A lot of people annoy me. Can we put them in jail too?
