The Spam-King retires

By Derek Sooman on July 21, 2005, 6:57 AM
It looks like the Spam-King has stopped spamming! Scott Richter has become one of the most vibrant and visible members of the spam community, selling "Spam-King" T-Shirts and doing nothing whatsoever to prevent himself from being identified as a prime spam offender. His name made Spamhaus's Register of Known Spam Operations (ROKSO), probably the most comprehensive list of known spammers on the internet, and he was sued by both Microsoft and the New York attorney general for this spamming activities.

Well, seemingly now Richter has stopped his spamming for good, and has been removed from ROKSO. Even his T-Shirts are not available anymore, after Hormel foods, makers of processed meat, complained about trademark infringement.
