Facebook wins suit against spammer

spam1

Facebook has just won a $837 million judgement against a spammer who posted sexually explicit spam on the site.  Before getting caught, the Canadian man managed to send out over 4 million messages in just two months to users of the social networking (er… social utility site).  While they don’t actually expect to see any of the money, Facebook is hoping that the size of the settlement will deter future spammers.
