Pharmacy spammer gets jailed for 30 years

If you are reading this with a nice, triumphant feeling and thinking that this is the beginning of the end for spammers, sorry to disappoint you. I was disappointed too. Though the spammer, Christopher Smith, got his comeuppance, the 30 year jail sentence wasn’t for spamming. It was for illegally selling prescription drugs and related charges.


I wonder when we’ll have tough laws that deal with the most despicable creatures on earth, like the guy above. Execution may be a bit messy and too simple a punishment, but I’d definitely vote for giving spammers a taste of their own medicine (literally).

Dear lawmakers. Please realize that there is something worse than you on this planet and tough action needs to be taken against it. When can we expect to have laws that effectively deal with the damage that spammers cause?
