LEESBURG, Va. - He was once considered among the top 10 spammers in the world, using the Internet to peddle pornography and sham products and services like the "FedEx refunding processor," prosecutors say. Convicted in the nation's first felony case against illegal spamming, Jeremy Jaynes, 30, on Friday was sentenced to nine years in prison for bombarding Internet users with the junk e-mails. Sat Apr 9, 3:01 AM ET By MATTHEW BARAKAT, Associated Press Writer But Loudoun County Circuit Judge Thomas Horne delayed the start of Jaynes' prison term while the case is appealed, saying the law is new and raises constitutional questions.

A welcome start, and hopefully it will give other SPAMmers in the US a reason for concern, or just a greater incentive to hide their tracks.

Finally!

Good ridance to spammers. Now they will wake up and smell the coffee. :thumbsup: And realize that spamming is as much of a crime as downloading music for free.
