They should just string him up by his fingers so he can never type an email again

I hope they give him a decent sentence. I hate phishing schemes...

In addition to the anti-spam conviction, Goodin was convicted of 10 other counts, including wire fraud, misuse of the AOL trademark and attempted witness harassment.
That would explain 101 years...
