Dave Linhardt files another SLAPP lawsuit

Word has reached me that Dave Linhardt, who is currently suing Spamhaus for calling him a spammer, has filed suit against several more anti-spammers, including Tim Skirvin who maintains the news.admin.net-abuse.sightings newsgroup, which among other things, documents spam sent by his company, E360. He's suing them for defamation for calling him a spammer.

Update: The filing is now available online (pdf, 7 pages). It's the usual: It's not spam, he uses double opt-in, the people he sent it to really wanted it, and defendants are forwarding mail from him to blacklists to get him listed.

Update: Lawsuit has been withdrawn.
