Spam Sandwich

Dallas computer programmer Stephen Whitis laughs upon hearing that Marin sued after being called a spammer. On September 21, Whitis became a victim of one of Marin's companies. "They were sending out spam that was using my domain name," he says. As Andy Markley did, Whitis traced his spam back to Internet America LLC. Now the two hope to find other victims for possible legal action against Marin.

"The net is arguably the most important advance in human communication since the invention of the printing press, maybe even more important than radio or TV because of its interactive nature," Markley says. "But the Internet has been hijacked by spammers and racketeers."
