This is a very interesting article. If we take these idiots to a show like Judge Judy, it's a quick, easy way to make some serious cash.

Is there a way to make a living suing spammers? Well, at least until they stop spamming. Posted Image

Of course, they'll likely move spam offshore...d'oh! Those cunning spammers!
Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him...a super-callused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

You can sue them until you're blue in the face but you're not going to be awarded any damages (except perhaps punitive damages) unless you're suing under some sort of anti-spam legislation that specifies a particular award.

Mike plz explain.

The article is about just that, "sueing" them for $500.00

Whether or not they pay is a different story.
