Facebook Spammer Has to Pay $711 Million, Your Annoying 'Friends' Still Free to Poke You

"Spam King" Sanford Wallace was just ordered to pay $711 million in damages in a case about him spamming the hell out of Facebook users. Meanwhile, your idiot friends are still zombie biting you.

While I'm all about stopping professional spammers, I find it amusing that this case revolved around Facebook. At this point, a good 75% of the messages I receive from that damned site are unwanted and annoying. Invites to shit from people I don't know, annoying app pings and all the rest of it. Hell, it's almost like Facebook is designed to send you annoying messages. That's the whole point!

But yeah, anyways, nice work nailin' the Spam King, guys. [CNNMoney]
