There’s an excellent article on NYTimes today about the fight against spammers, and how one man, has been pivotal in the fight. In particular his website,, has been the de facto source of information on blocking spammers at the basic level. Take note of an article posted on that site, with details that the U.S. may pass a law that’ll increase spam tenfold, empowering spammers with more freedom to spam us. It’s just plain sad.

Also worthy to note is that Spamhaus names the single biggest spammer. His name is Alan Ralsky, an e-mail marketer in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. If there’s ever a law to string up spammers to a tree, and have them shot, this person should be first in line. Hmm, where’s Mr. T when you need him?
