Swedish Tax Office Targets Webcam Strippers 384

Posted by samzenpus
from the anything-for-my-job dept.
Sweden's tax authorities are cracking down on unreported webcam stripper income. They estimate that hundreds of Swedish women are dodging the law, resulting in a tax loss of about 40m Swedish kronor (£3.3m) annually. The search involves tax officials examining stripper websites, hours upon hours, for completely legitimate purposes. A slightly disheveled project leader said 200 Swedish strippers had been investigated so far, adding the total could be as much as 500. "They are young girls, we can see from the photos. We think that perhaps they are not well informed about the rules," he said.

Servlets don't restrict network connections, and people do it all the time to talk to their database. I know you're not supposed to spawn threads with EJB (because transaction information is kept in thread local storage), but I don't recall anything about not spawning threads being in the servlet spec. I know of a lot of code that does it in various containers without problems.

Parts that positively cannot be assembled in improper order will be.
