Man described as a top spammer arrested - Yahoo! News

Man described as a top spammer arrested - Yahoo! News: "By GENE JOHNSON, AP Legal Affairs Writer

SEATTLE - A 27-year-old man described as one of the world's most prolific spammers was arrested Wednesday, and federal authorities said computer users across the Web could notice a decrease in the amount of junk e-mail.

Robert Alan Soloway is accused of using networks of compromised 'zombie' computers to send out millions upon millions of spam e-mails.

'He's one of the top 10 spammers in the world,' said Tim Cranton, a Microsoft Corp. lawyer who is senior director of the company's Worldwide Internet Safety Programs. 'He's a huge problem for our customers. This is a very good day.'

A federal grand jury last week returned a 35-count indictment against Soloway charging him with mail fraud, wire fraud, e-mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and money laundering.

Soloway pleaded not guilty Wednesday afternoon to all charges after a judge determined that — even with four bank accounts seized by the government — he was sufficiently well off to pay for his own lawyer.

He has been living in a ritzy apartment and drives an expensive Mercedes convertible, said prosecutor Kathryn Warma. Prosecutors are seeking to have him forfeit $773,000 they say he made from his business, Newport Internet Marketing Corp."

Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School

Yes, this show is my obsession. And since the language is so vulgar, I have to make sure that I'm watching it when Sir isn't around. Today he actually went down for a nap, and boy when he did, I rushed mom away from the laundry to watch it with me. I was hopping up and down, like the kid I am, yelling: "Hurry up! The Tivo's ready! The boy is sleep! Hurry!" Then I ran upstairs like a crazy person. Mom slowly took her time and then proceeded to make herself a snack. The whole time I'm wondering what in the heck is wrong with her. I had to yell at her again for her to hurry. And do you know what she said to me? She said, "Hurry, for what?" My mouth fell open. Like, didn't I just tell her that the baby's sleeping and that we ain't got much time before he's up, yelling at me to go outside. Then she's like, "Oooh...Start the Tivo, I didn't know you were waiting on me." Come on now, seriously? It went to prove my point that since I am the youngest child in my brother's shadow, that I'm invisible around here. If Peanut had told her the show was on, she would have knocked me down to get to it.

Anywho, finally she sat down and we watched in horror as Larissa continued to lie her little buttocks off. That chick gets on my last nerve. And I couldn't believe that Shay had fallen into her trap and that Becky was crying like a little _ _ _ _ _. And I can't tell you how happy I was to see Larissa go home. Yeah, she brought a lot of interesting drama to the show, but there's only but so much of her that I can stand. And that guy was right on point for calling her out as a psychopath. Even my dad was glued to the show. The only problem is that he talks way too much through the program--it drives me crazy.

I can't wait for the next episode. And I'm looking forward to more drama on the upcoming seasons of Flavor of Love 3 and I Love New York 2. Ignorance is gonna be in full effect. What!!!!! It's gonna be on.

Advil: Part II

You should always listen to that quiet inner voice.

Yes, I did get the Advil.

Yes, my mom did locate it by asking the pharmacist for it.

Yes, it was behind the counter and mom had to fill out paperwork to purchase it.

Yes, when I first began my hunt for the Advil, something inside told me that it may be behind the counter.

NO, I didn't listen to that thought and had to suffer needlessly for a couple of days before mom listened to her inner voice and found it for me.

Thanks Crystal and E. Craig for tryin' to help a sista' out.

I've been on the hunt for Advil Sinus & Allergy medication; I had a trial packet that worked wonders for me when nothing else did. And today I went from store to store on a hunt to find this elusive medication. Without any success, I had to settle for another brand. And as I am typing, I'm pissed at the fact that I've paid seven bucks for a product that isn't delivering any relief. And let me be clear, I'd never had any allergy problems up until I gave birth to Sir, so this is fairly new territory form me. It's funny how giving birth can change a woman's body. I used to have PMS cramps--but now I don't. I used to be crazy--but now I'm totally insane. I used to think clear thoughts--but now everything's muddled together. I used to fuss--but now...hmmm...I fuss.

Oaky, minutes later and there's still no relief! What's a sista' got to do to feel better?

Let Me Jump Right In...

Um, did she just have the nerve to be mad at me because I refused to allow Sir to eat a sugary Popsicle that her hyper-active great-grandson had given Sir right before dinner? Huh? Did her stanky ass have the nerve to tell me that I'm being mean because I won't let Sir have a gigantic sugary Popsicle right before dinner?

Here's where Miss Nikki Ann gets petty...

Is this the same woman who's had that gosh damned newspaper on top of her house since last August?!

Let me paint a picture here...

Miss Nikki Ann has had it with bullshit! And Miss Nikki Friggin' Ann ain't her usual self today and ain't been her usual self for a couple of weeks now.

Let me finish my venting...

And the nerve of the other one to tell me to go to the block watch meeting and bitch about there not being a sprinkler in the park!

Miss Nikki Ann is now irate...

Who gives a flying frickin' fig about a damn sprinkler in the park when our neighbors are being robbed by the handfuls in daylight.


And I could go on, but I will now revert back to some things that Kathy taught me a long time ago. And on the top of that list is the fact that I have options. And, right now, one of my options is to leave people the heck alone in an effort to assure that they leave me alone. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Recently it was gossiped that I might be pregnant because I'd missed some playgroups and walking dates. Ya' see, even when your goal is to step back and keep a low-profile people will drag your name around in the mud.

But for the friggin' record, how can a sexually-repressed woman with no hopes of a friggin' sex life be pregnant? Come on! For friggin' cryin' out loud!

Now I must go. And for anyone who didn't understand anything I wrote...join the club--I'm the chairwoman.

Just Chatting...

Recently I received a few messages from folks who were wondering if I'm still around. Yes, I'm still here. And I'd like to take the time out to say...


I hope everyone is doing well. As for me, I can't complain. All I can say is that patience is a bitch!
