    NEW YORK (AP) - Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) and New York's attorney general filed lawsuits Thursday against what they called a spam ring responsible for sending billions of illegal e-mail messages.

    The lawsuits, filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, target Scott Richter, who has been identified as one of the world's most prolific senders of spam, or junk e-mail. They accuse Richter and "accomplices" of sending illegal spam in 35 countries and disguising their work to prevent irritated consumers from tracing the messages.

    I agree that putting these people in jail with tax-payers money isn't recommended but a very big fine with a lot of community service would definitly do them, & us at the same time, a lot of good.

    That's too good for them. I am a firm believer in letting the punishment fit the crime. I also fully endorse cruel and unusual punishment in such cases :p
