Microsoft goes after Spammers, Finally Some days back I reported the reduction in spam that I noticed on my hotmail account. Well, That didn't last very long. Spam is back again to its glory days but looks like not for long. Microsoft has finally decided to go after the Spammers and has filed a so-called John Doe suit in the federal court for the northern district of California in San Jose. The suit doesn’t name defendants, but allows the plaintiff the power to issue subpoenas as part of the investigative phase of the trial.
