InfoWorld has a short interview with Scott today. And if the SpamKing's name sounds somewhat familiar, he was the guy interviewed on the Daily Show a couple weeks ago.

Am I correct in understanding that the guy who will be selling these "Spamking" clothes is actually a real Spam King and that buying his clothes will further fund his spamming?

From the article: "'I wonder how he's going to advertise it,' quipped David Sorkin, associate professor at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago, and an expert on spam."

And here I thought Sanford Wallace was the spam king. I hope he sues.

This guy deserves nothing more than a few thousand kicks to the nuts and then the sweet release of a bullet to the left temple.

I wouldn't wear his garbage clothes if he paid me alot of money. He's scum who got rich by pissing off most everybody. Why would anyone want to do business with him?

What fenriq said, without the sweet release part. Let the bastard suffer.

Shrug. He claims to send the advertisements from his own "domain space"; I'm not sure what that means, but it probably excludes using hijacked machines, which is where the vast, vast majority of my spam comes from. I grant that spammers = liars, but if I'm looking to get back at the people who fill my mailbox with crap, it's probably not this guy.
