US firm Savvis was allegedly earning up to $2 million a month from 148 of the world's worst spammers, a former employee had claimed. Following talks with anti-spam groups, Savvis has now promised to get rid of the spammers using its network.
I'd never heard of Savvis, but the subsidiary they bought and "inherited" the spammers from didn't have a good reputation from what I recall (I used to read some of the anti-spam newsgroups back in the day). However, it's likely someone will form a new corporation to pick up all that lovely business, because Savvis really, really liked the income. So I won't be looking for a reduction in the penile power/viagra/Nigerian scam mail for a while yet.
