Spammers Worse than Prostitutes and Pimps, Says Action of former NY Attorney General Eliot Spitzer

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

We in the anti-spam field have known it all along, but the events of this week confirm it: spammers are worse than prostitutes, pimps, and those involved in plying the human traffic trade. Clearly that is the only way to interpret the actions of former N.Y. Attorney General and soon-to-be-former Governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer. Spitzer this week was linked to – and has admitted to – ties to a prostitution ring spanning several countries, and boasting some of the highest-paid call girls in world – some commanding more than $5,000 per hour. But that was chump change for some of the extremely wealthy clients of the ring, which operated through a group and website known as the Emperor’s Club VIP.

News articles, blogs, and armchair pundits abound who will talk far more eloquently (or at least voluminously) than I about what Spitzer did, why he did it, how he did it, in what positions he did it, and what he should do now.


But what I want to talk about is the subtext – for which Eliot Spitzer, no matter how low a whore-mongering-good-for-nothing-philandering-scum he may be – should be praised.

For Eliot Spitzer has, in his actions, taken a stand which we here applaud:

Spammers are even lower and scummier and worse than hookers and pimps and johns, oh my!

Because Eliot Spitzer, while investing in and perhaps even enjoying the company of – ahem – ‘ladies of the evening’, made a career out of hating, prosecuting, and taking down spammers. He’s tangled with the worst and the best (depending on how you look at it) spammers – taking each of them down in the doing. Scott Richter, MonsterHut, InterMix – Spitzer went after them all, and nailed each and every one of them.

Eliot – you’re a disgrace to public office, and the lowest of the low in the husband department – but we have to hand it to you- when choosing between spammers and whores, you went after the right group.

Actually let’s face it – spammers are whores – they just screw a different group of people, but it’s all taking money to do a dirty deed. At least a prostitute’s target has some hope of enjoying the transaction.

  1. no, i’m commenting on spitzer’s stupidity and/or arrogance. no one but my wife really cares what i do, (but her opinion, and respect, are important to me) but spitzer is a public figure as a “moral crusader”, he lives and dies by his reputation. without it he is nothing, and now he has screwed the pooch.
