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.

They should whip the flesh off his back with an enlarged penis and then drown him in a pool filled with viagra pills.

He should be forced to eat his computers in 24 hours. Should he fail to do it, he should be forced to answer all the e-mails that he had ever sent, without the cntrl "c-v" function.

That was an open door, and there has to be at least the slightest bit of a challenge. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
