    With so many of these Spammers comming in saying "Free $1,000,000,000 Bass Pro Shops Card" & stuff like this, I figured I'd ask: How do they work? I mean do they get money each time someone clicks there link, or when someone actually signs up for whatever kind of SCAM they are trying to do. Just wondering how it works, there has to be $ in it somewhere or there wouldnt be anyone doing it, right?

    Typically, yes Bryan. They get x amount of money per click/impression.

    Sweet so if I did something like "Free Naked Pics OF Bubbahunter" I'd get money for every times someone clicks it? Sweet, I'm quitting my job & becomming a Spammer.

    Bryan, this is a great effort that has taken effect nation wide.

    The goal is to get enough money together to give you private fishing lessons.

    Spammers know that it will take alot of effort, but the end results would be fantastic!

    It will take alot of money, because they have well known fishermen like Linder, Houston, and many Ohio river guides who have signed up to give the lessons.

    Lord Knows my "free lessons" have not worked, and might have even slowed your progress.

  12. A Virginia judge sentenced a spammer to nine years in prison Friday in the nation's first felony prosecution for sending junk e-mail, though the sentence was postponed while the case is appealed.
    Loudoun County Circuit Judge Thomas Horne said that because the law targeting bulk e-mail distribution is new and raises constitutional questions, it was appropriate to defer the prison time until appeals courts rule.

    A jury had recommended the nine-year prison term after convicting Jeremy Jaynes of pumping out at least 10 million e-mails a day with the help of 16 high-speed lines, the kind of Internet capacity a 1,000-employee company would need.
