FTC cracking pornheads in Florida

The FTC has many some small headway in the fight against pornographic spam by imposing some hefty fines on a group of website operators and their affiliates. Unfortunately, I have to call it “small headway” because the group was limited to four payees, and they coughed up roughly $1.2 million.

Included were BangBros.com Inc. of Miami at $650,000, MD Media of Bingham Farms, Michigan with $239,000, APC Entertainment Inc. of Davie, Florida at $220,000, and Pure Marketing Solutions LLC of Miami and Internet Matrix Technology of New Orleans together for $50,000. Just have to say that Florida is living up to its reputation as a spam haven; I wonder how long it will be until South Florida upends Southern California as the porn capital as well.

Good news or bad news?

News that will repulse some, and make others very happy – porn spam is on the rise again.

The only problem with this is that most Bayesian spam filters (i.e. SpamAssassin) already have so many base keywords related to porn built in, that I doubt much porn spam is going to hit everyday Joe and Jane’s inboxes.

Again, good news for some, and bad news for others.
