Free Jeremy Jaynes!
As you've no doubt heard, last week a Virginia judge upheld a November 2004 jury recommendation that spam king Jeremy Jaynes serve nine years for breaking that state's spam law. But in a new opinion piece for BetaNews, I argue that the sentence, which is under appeal, does not fit the crime and threatens to make a martyr of Jaynes.
(P.S. For the sarcasm-impaired, I'm just kidding with that headline. Personally, I hope he enjoys his time with Bubba. I'm just predicting that the harsh sentence is going to backfire. I hope I'm wrong.)

I know spam canbe anoying, but someone to serve 9 years in Jail for is too far, banning using a computer for life , thats okay. I mean here in england, for raping someone you get average 3 years, now is jeremys actions as bad as that?
I hate spam, I also hate adverts on telly when Im watching a good movie, but hey I know I wont die from it.
The real reason I think is that the government dont want people to make millionaires of them selves so easily, it will effect the economy of us, if this became a trend, could become very dangerous.
Also I think he is getting a lot of hate becuase he has made a lot of money from it, which means us humans have to show our jealous side! when will we learn.
