Joe Wein, quoting Christian Schiffer, wrote to SURBL Discussion list:

BWAHAHAHA! His domain is 188 days old, and, as near as I can tell, was
listed in WS on September 4th, which was 22 days ago. So, if
"multi-million" means, at minimum, $2M, SURBL cost him, on average, $90K
per *day*. I'd really like to see his business model. (Actually, I'd
also really love to confirm that SURBL cost a spammer that much money!

"working for the completion"? Does he mean "working for the
competition?" Heh.

Best case, the guy will go bankrupt trying to convince his lawyers to
"bring you down", while you ignore him. Probably, though, he'll just go
away after awhile. "Within the hour" is especially cute, given the
timestamp of his message:

     From: "Christian Schiffer" <memberservice at single4you.net>
     To: "'Joe Wein'" <joewein at pobox.com>

I bet, if he was even half serious, he'd realize that most lawyers
aren't cheap at 1:11am. :-)

Thanks for posting this, Joe.
