Jason Smathers, 24, from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Shoot him on sight!

"[COLOR=#1951B9]An America Online software engineer stole a list of 92 million customer screen names that was eventually used to send massive amounts of e-mail spam, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. Smathers, working at AOL offices in Dulles, Virginia, stole the list and sold it to a Las Vegas man, Sean Dunaway, who used it to promote an Internet gambling operation and sold it to spammers, a criminal complaint said.[/COLOR]"

Its nice to see all of this anti-spam legislation is actually having effect, and hopefully these spammers will be being put to death soon.
