Spammer beaten to death

Now there's a tagline that writes itself. Well known Russian spammer, Vardan Kushnir was found beaten to death.

Andrei Kashutin, the managing director of IT Dvizhenia, an industry association of nearly 7,000 IT students and young professionals, said Kushnir and his company were the most well-known spammers in Russia, sending millions of unsolicited e-mail messages offering English classes at the American Language Center.

"Anybody who regularly uses e-mail has come across their spam," Kashutin said. He added, however, that it was highly unlikely that an angry e-mail user would actually kill him, "especially if it happened in his own apartment."
