Spammers attack spamhaus

SPAMHAUSSteve Linford of Spamhaus is being joe-jobbed by someone who is flooding the role accounts of various sites with emails about the $11M judgement against spamhaus (obtained by spam provider Dave Linhardt in a court without jurisdiction). At least some of the spam is coming from EV1. See Spamhaus alert for more info. Spamhaus believes the joe-jobber is spammer William Stanley.

On the very busy webhosting message board forum called webhostingtalk.com, there was an interesting thread started by someone who disliked Spamhaus and people who hate spam (maybe peppered with posts by anti-spammers). Unfortunately the thread got locked due to potential flaming. Some interesting arguments nonetheless:

After seeing the lawsuit against newsgroup participants, I filed suit against E360Insight and Linhardt for spamming. This is at http://www.myspamsuit.com
