This is good. I can't stand spam. A little off-topic but worthwhile. Spammers take note.

From ZDNet:
'A New York court has ordered a Niagara Falls company to stop telling consumers they had asked to be spammed. Manhattan Superior Court Justice Lottie Wilkins permanently enjoined MonsterHut from falsely representing that it had obtained permission to send e-mail to consumers. The company was sued by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer in May. Spitzer lauded the ruling this week. "New Yorkers are being overwhelmed with unsolicited commercial e-mail," he said in a release. "This decision is another victory in our continuing battle against online fraud and will help consumers maintain control of their e-mail in-boxes." '
