    The AOL software engineer who stole email addresses is one example of how vulnerable users are and then...enter the rest of the spammers. Trustworthiness and Accountability on the Internet is really very pitiful.

    It's a good first start.
    But they need to gear up and go after the big time spammers in all countries as well as those creating the zombie spam armies.
    If they only concentrate on the primitive spammers (like in the article), they are merely helping the big professional spammers to remove their competition.

    But, then they would most likely run up against their "campaign" money!
