You are assuming he was trying to game the system. Gordon had numerous opportunities not to loose his personal possessions. Yet, he choose to loose them and continue fighting SPAM. That tells me that he values his contribution towards anti-spam over his personal belongings. As for the spam companies he was fighting...well I hope they enjoy those stinky old couches, used underwear, and pictures of dear old grand ma ma! They obviously are in it for the money. Bravo for Gordon, he didn't let a bunch of tyrants bully him.
