    I'm glad they're showing they won't put up with spam, but 9 years. Holy crap!
    There's alot of people out there who do a hell of a lot worse things and got off with a slap on the wrist basically. This throws the whole system out of whack. If you had a list for the seriousness of crimes I'm sure most would have spamming near the bottom. I know I would, but if it gets 9 years in prison what the hell do the crimes at the top of the list get?. I just think it throws the whole punishment system out of whack. It just doesn't fit the system that's in place.

    that all just seems ridiculous to me.
    hell, I get real junk mail all the time, and nobody gets arrested for that.
    /me doesn't see what the big deal is, as people that get a lot of spam are usually mostly to blame, themselves.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    Meh, it's far too lenient, I say.

    They should have cut off his hands.

    And his nose.
