Thanks, but I wouldn't go quite that far. Basically, after reading a
lot of depressing spam stories on this NG, I thought it might be
interesting to hear a few "success" stories ... especially if they
involve spammers thwarted in part due to their own stupidity. Everybody
loves a good "stupid criminal" story. It helps us feel better about the
crime problem in that it gives some "hope". And, since many people
consider spam to be a crime, I think "stupid spammer" stories would have
the same effect.
