Submission + - Bail Denied for Spam King (

Spamicles writes: The man accused of defrauding people with millions of spam emails has been denied bail today. Judge James P. Donohue said Robert Soloway, 27, of Seattle, should remain in jail until his trial scheduled for Aug. 6 because he has minimal ties to Washington state and has family in Sweden. Spamhaus has listed Soloway as one of the 135 spammers that were responsible for up to 80 percent of all spam sent.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
