I don't mean this to be insulting by any means, but I have seen you
mention Lynch mobs and vigilante justice on here a few different times,
I am just curious to know if there have ever been any documented
instances where vigilante justice has taken place over the issue of
spamming, and if so, was the victim actually found by information
provided in the whois data base?

Thank You,
