    The sentences should've been consecutive, and not concurrent!

    Screwed? He needed to be hung, justice is not served even with a 7 year sentence.

    I read somewhere eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, death for spam.

    Well, a question he's gonna learn to be really scared of hearing is: "Is this big enough for you or can your pills make this bigger?"...

    "BUFFALO, N.Y. - A man who sent 850 million junk e-mails through accounts he opened with stolen identities was sentenced to up to seven years in prison on Thursday.



    Atlanta-based Internet service provider Earthlink Inc. said it hoped the sentence and an earlier $16.4 million civil judgment against Howard Carmack will deter other spammers.

    "Before spammers send one more spam e-mail, we think they should remember that what happened to Howard Carmack can happen to them," said Karen Casion, Earthlink's assistant general counsel.

    Jurors sentenced Carmack to seven years for convictions in March of forgery, identity theft and falsifying business records. He must serve a minimum 3 1/2 years.

    Earthlink said Carmack ran 343 illegal e-mail accounts under false names from 2002 until his arrest last May, using them to send unsolicited e-mail ads for things like get-rich-quick schemes and sexual enhancers. "

    GOOD,GOOD..........

    MAYBE THE REST WILL LEARN!!!!!!!!!

    Well he is black and I have heard in some cases due to race that supposedly a black guy got like 10 years for carjacking a car yet a white guy only got 4 years for 2nd degree murder. I don't know it is a possiblility why he received so many years yes?

    Spammer sentenced to 7 years

    A US man who sent 850 million junk emails through accounts he opened with stolen identities has been sentenced to up to seven years in prison.

    Internet service provider Earthlink said it hoped the sentence and an earlier $US16.4 million ($22.9 million) civil judgment against Howard Carmack will deter other spammers.
    "Before spammers send one more spam email, we think they should remember that what happened to Howard Carmack can happen to them," said Karen Casion, Earthlink's assistant general counsel . . .

    My brother was in a cell for 3 months for getting in a huge brawl & kicking some people's @$$e$ quite hard, hes sort of the military type dude, likes to watch heavy violence, he met a so called "Bubba" that raped people in jail cells. And to this day, its the only thing he is scared of, and hes never really scared of anything (Note: he didn't get raped).

    That's a bluff, they are trying to intimidate spammers with this "I'll make an example out of you" stuff, but it's the same old story as the RIAA, they won this battle but they lost the war ages ago.

    Nevertheless, I'll be happy to know I'll get a couple less spams while this guy rots in the slammer.

    What utter rot.

    The guy was sentanced because of mass fraud, not because he's black, white, green, pink, or even blue with yellow polka dots.

    Let's leave racial issues for a different thread, huh?

    Now, regarding the prison sentance;
    I hope they force feed him canned pork for lunch, for his entire sentance

    Peace,
    exactly, he was sentanced for fraud and forgery etc, it just so happens that he was also a spammer, but it wont do anything to discourage the rest.

    spammer !

    in fact spam is being legitamized in some ways by saying that "if you have your email address and a way of unsubscribing from the list then it is NOT spam" !!
