So you can see why anti-spam authorities were so eager to arrest the so-called “spam king” Robert Soloway, who sent millions of spam emails to people and insisted that what he was doing was legal and protected by US free speech laws.  According to the BBC’s video, some recipients of his emails disagreed, but this seems to have been by-the-by as far as I can tell, since he was arrested for identity fraud, money laundering and mail fraud, not for the spam itself.  Perhaps this is why the rate of spam in the world has not fallen since his arrest.  In fact, the following day 70 billion spam emails were sent, which as the Beeb helpfully point out, equates to more than ten by every person on the planet.

Now that is a lot of spam.  Now that is a lot of spam.  Now that is a lot of spam…
