I love how every statement the spam people are quoted as saying in this article could be very easily applied to the spammers’ practices themselves. “Unfairly exploiting” the law to make a buck, etc. I mean come on, you make a living scamming people, and you complain when you get scammed back?
Daniel Balsam hates spam. Most everybody does, of course. But he has acted on his hate as few have, going far beyond simply hitting the delete button. He sues them.
Eight years ago, Balsam was working as a marketer when he received one too many e-mail pitches to enlarge his breasts.
Enraged, he launched a Web site called Danhatesspam.com, quit a career in marketing to go to law school and is making a decent living suing companies who flood his e-mail inboxes with offers of cheap drugs, free sex and unbelievable vacations.
