Spammer Sues SpamCop

kvbeek Re:He CAN-SPAM... the law says so! (466 comments)

Obfuscation is also done to protect the identity of the "deputy" members of the SpamCop team. They're the people that do part-time work digging through and documenting the spam they get. If their addresses are revealed to spammers, their ability to be effective is diminished. Once found out, spammers would just avoid their addresses to avoid being reported.

And these are smart people that know the difference between commercial email (that you agreed to get or asked for) and SPAM.
