Taking anti-spam work personally

Via Brent, comes the AP story of a man who quit his job, went to law school, and now sues spammers:

Eight years ago, Balsam was working as a marketer when he received one too many e-mail pitches to enlarge his breasts.

Enraged, he launched a Web site called, quit a career in marketing to go to law school and is making a decent living suing companies who flood his e-mail inboxes with offers of cheap drugs, free sex and unbelievable vacations.

I feel like I’m doing a little bit of good cleaning up the Internet, Balsam said.

As Brent says, Go! Go! Go!

As for me, I say it’s too bad I didn’t have the confidence to do something like that when I left IBM.
