Spammer's Porsche up for grabs

AOL says the Porsche has "symbolic value"

Internet giant AOL has ratcheted up the war against unsolicited e-mail with a publicity-grabbing coup - an online raffle of a spammer's seized Porsche.

AOL won the car - a $47,000 Boxster S - as part of a court settlement against an unnamed e-mailer last year. "We'll take cars, houses, boats - whatever we can find and get a hold of," said AOL's Randall Boe. According to Mr Boe, the Porsche's previous owner made more than $1m by sending junk e-mail.

AOL users can win a porche

It's a 2002 Porsche Boxster S that will be the grand prize in an America Online sweepstakes launching Tuesday.

AOL obtained the car in settling a lawsuit against "a guy who by our estimates made more than a million dollars from spamming," said Randall Boe, AOL executive vice president and general counsel.

Got to agree with that. Don't just post single words, it could be viewed as spamming :)

Oh, I know what he's doing. He's spamming, not to make a fortune out of it like the one in this news article, but to increase his post count. :p
