I’m retiring from the anti-spam business

Well, I’ve been in this business a long time and have been responsible for blocking billions of messages of spam over my life time.  There has been a lot of progress made over the past year, and especially with the Rustock take down last week, the industry is in good hands without me.  I feel that it is the appropriate time to announce my retirement from fighting spam.

What will I be doing?

I’ve decided to pursue one of my other interests, one that I used to do a decade ago.  I used to be a street performer, entertaining audiences with street magic (a la David Blaine).  I traveled around the world in 2002 performing in various countries, and before my body goes into decline I wish to bring my skills out of retirement and become very good at doing the same things.  My abilities have degraded somewhat over the past few years because I don’t get to perform as much and let’s face it – I love the entertaining aspect of it all.  This is all going to go towards me trying to get a TV special in the next year.

Yes, I know that this sounds unusual but that’s my plan.  Maybe you’ll see me in a city near you!






Ha, ha, just kidding.  This is an April Fool’s Day joke!  I’m not going anywhere!  There’s still plenty of Internet abuse to mitigate!
