Man Hates Spam, So He Sues Companies To Stop It
He has managed to make enough money to sustain himself, which says a lot about just how much spam is out there. Around 200 billion spam messages are shot out each day, which accounts for around 90% of all email. That's a big target for Daniel, and he's after them. So far, it seems that he's winning. Of course, it's pretty hard for spam senders to justify their actions, so it doesn't seem too difficult for Daniel to get on a winning streak.
While you may assume that everyone would be in support of his actions, that's not exactly the case. Some companies say that he's just out for easy blood, with many companies settling in order to prevent fighting a costly legal battle in court. But of course, that seems to be a weak excuse; if everyone is settling, they're pretty much admitting that they're wrong, or at least admitting that they have little to no chance of winning in court.
Whatever the case, we appreciate that someone's fighting spam, and we hope that these victories lead to a decrease in the amount of rubbish that floods our inboxes.
