The interesting thing is what sort of punishment will he get.

A severe and deterrent punishment must be given to him or else it is just a waste of time and spammers will continue to do what they do UNLESS a severe penalty is given out.

A BIG fine, caning and jail term will deter and scare off other spammers !!!
