Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Revenge is sweet?

Published: Wednesday 2005-07-27.

As you know I am not particularly fond of spammers, and I have often expressed that I think something obvious should be done about the problem. Yesterday we could read that a Russian spammer was murdered (whether it actually was because of the spamming or for other reasons is unclear). This might be a slightly drastic “solution” to the problem, hopefully it would be possible to find a slightly more civilised solution.

In other news today I notice that archæologists have uncovered what spammers would have sold if they had lived in the stone age. However, I’m not quite sure I believe in that business idea. I mean, made of stone? Ouch.

Update: It seems that the murder was not related to the spamming, but just was a straightforward robbery.

"Rock hard" för all del, men i det här fallet tvivlar jag på arkeologernas förklaring. Jag ser det lika gärna som en stötel till en mortel, för att mala örter. De föremål vi lämnar efter oss kommer att förbrylla forskarna om 20000 år också, med skillnaden att vi kanske kan dokumentera och genom regelbunden förnyelse bevara dokumentationen om vilka vi var och vad vi gjorde. I Västerås finns det en låda nedgrävd med en hälsning från nu till framtiden, tänkt att grävas upp om några tusen år eller så.

Om det nu var ett rånmord, och inte ett attentat maskerat som rånmord, är det ytterligare ett bevis på att omvärlden värderar en efter vad man äger och vem man ser ut att vara, mer än vem man faktiskt är? ;-/
