I was delighted, and highly amused, by news that the so-called “King Of Spam”, Robert Soloway, has pleaded guilty to fraud and other crimes. He may face 26 years in prison.
There are several ironies here.
One, just like Al Capone, he is not going to prison for his actual crimes (shamelessly sending spam and explicitly inappropriate content, without caring if children were the recipients, costing users and ISPs millions or more in extra costs and time/effort wastage) but for tax fraud. Al Capone must be turning in his grave.
Two, it would be such sweet poetic justice, and irony, when he finds himself the new “Queen of Slam” or ‘bitch’ of some hard core prisoners in the prison cells and showers.
Triple the irony, if his new “Daddy Bubba” and buddies are criminals who had actually ordered and used penis enlargement pills AND Viagra that Robert Soloway may have at one time emailed them about.
Quadruple the irony, if those pills actually had worked… poor Robert Soloway. It’s going to be a long, long, long, hard, hard, hard 26 years in prison.
