This guy is AWESOME! His “career” is the hustle of all hustles, clap for him.
Daniel Balsam hates spam. Most everybody does, of course. But he has acted on his hate as few have, going far beyond simply hitting the delete button. He sues them.
Eight years ago, Balsam was working as a marketer when he received one too many e-mail pitches to enlarge his breasts.
Enraged, he launched a website called Danhatesspam.com, quit a career in marketing to go to law school and is making a decent living suing companies who flood his e-mail inboxes with offers of cheap drugs, free sex and unbelievable vacations.
“I feel like I’m doing a little bit of good cleaning up the Internet,” Balsam said.
From San Francisco Superior Court small claims court to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Balsam, based in San Francisco, has filed many lawsuits, including dozens before he graduated law school in 2008, against e-mail marketers he says violate anti-spamming laws.
His many victories are mere rain drops in the ocean considering that Cisco Systems. estimates that there are 200 billion spam messages circulating a day, accounting for 90% of all e-mail.
Still, Balsam settles enough lawsuits and collects enough from judgments to make a living. He has racked up well in excess of $1 million in court judgments and lawsuit settlements with companies accused of sending illegal spam.
Man, we’re mad we didn’t think of this idea hahaha! It must be very satisfying to sit in court, have a judge give you money, and watch opposing lawyers lose their sh*t in frustration. Kudos sir, you’re a great man, and a fine American.
Brings a whole new meaning to “Making It Rain On Them Hoes”.
Sgt. Tommy Thompson says a 28-year-old man walked into the Great Alaskan Bush Company shortly before midnight Sunday and started shooting, hitting four people before he ran out of ammunition.
Thompson says people inside the club wrestled the man to the ground and held him until officers arrived.
The first victim is identified as a 34-year-old man who died from gunshot wounds after being rushed to a hospital. Police have not released information on the second person who died, other than he is an adult male.
Another man and a 20-year-old woman were hospitalized with gunshot wounds. Thompson didn’t have details on their conditions.
Homie, you couldn’t have waited until whoever you were looking for came OUT the club??? You just HAD to fawk it up for everybody huh?? People paid good money to enjoy some boobies and here you go shootin’ and ISHT…SMH
On Christmas Day, what do you give the woman who got you a multi-million car for your birthday?
Illuminati Hov and his business partner Steve Stout were spotted outside the Hermes store in New York on Friday doing some last minute shopping.
Beyonce got some sweet gifts yesterday. Her husband, Jay-Z, was spotted shopping at Hermes’ plush Madison Avenue boutique on Christmas Eve. A spy reports, “Jay was in a private room of Hermes doing last-minute shopping. He had a guard standing watch outside. He spent $350,000 on Birkin bags, among other things.” The buying binge took so long, Jay-Z missed his scheduled lunch at Nello, prompting the restaurateur to deliver his food to the store. Jay-Z has plenty to spend — he’s getting $1 million to perform at the opening of the Cosmopolitan hotel and casino in Vegas on New Year’s Eve.
Wonder if he picked up Mama Tina and Ms. Gloria’s gifts while he was there. Check out the pics below. How cute is Steve’s daughter!!!
Forget The Hoes, Spain’s Christmas Lottery Makes It Rain On The Whole Damn Country…3 Billion Dollars Worth Of Rain!!
Maaaan listen, Spain got it RIGHT with their lottery system! Can you imagine how much money would be distributed if America used this same style? If they don’t re-elect Obama we might have to find some property in Madrid
Spain’s beloved Christmas lottery sprinkled 2.3 billion euros ($3 billion) in holiday cheer across the country Wednesday, handing out winnings eagerly welcomed by a nation facing 20 percent unemployment.
One of the most awaited days of the year in Spain served up merry moments for people struggling to make mortgage payments and pay bills, or those seeking jobs. One lottery vendor said he had hired a medium to lure good luck.
The government-run lottery billed as the world’s richest has no single jackpot but operates a complex share-the-wealth system in which thousands of five-digit numbers running from 00000 to 84999 win at least something. It is known as “El Gordo” (The Fat One) and dates back to 1812.
Tax-free winnings range from the face value of a 20-euro ($26.31) ticket — in other words, you get your money back — to a top prize of 300,000 euros ($394,650).
The sweepstakes, which goes on for three hours, informally ushers in the Christmas season. Many Spaniards spend the day glued to TV sets, radios and computers, waiting to see if they are among the lucky. People often team up to buy shares of tickets sold by bars, sports clubs and business offices.
We need to get a petition started, a youtube video, a demonstration, SOMETHING! But we need this here stateside ASAP!

Last night Bron Bron and his merry men handled their business last night in Madison Square Garden as the Heat defeated the Knicks 113-91, in their 11th straight win. Looks like some of the early season Lebron haters have had to eat a little crow as the team continues to gel and gain momentum.
James crushed the Knicks, scoring 32 points on 14-24 shooting. He also grabbed 11 rebounds and added 10 assists as Miami topped New York, 113-91, for its 11th straight win. It was James’ second triple-double of the season. From the opening tip, James was possessed. The Friday night crowd was amped, as the Knicks are performing better than they have in a decade. The team is 16-11, thanks in large part to MVP-caliber play of forward Amare Stoudemire, the free agent the Knicks signed instead of James. Less than a minute into the game, James sank a three-pointer, and hit another long jumper moments later. After each shot went in, James looked toward the sideline, and gave the Madison Square Garden crowd the “hush up” look. Though he did not go as far to talk trash with Spike Lee, who was sitting in his customary front row seat.
Miami is starting to mesh, and has now strung together one of those 11-game winning streaks fans were expecting all along (actually, many anticipated an 82-game streak for the new look Heat). “Boos are ok,” James afterwards. “I understand. It’s something I’ve gotten over my career on the road. I’ve had to adjust to it. The fans here are great. They’re very passionate and want their team to win and if you’re not on their team, you suck.”
After the final buzzer, a few New York fans couldn’t help hurling a few more obscenities James’ way. “I know,” he said while walking to the locker room, having wrapped up another astonishing performance on his “You Wish You Had Me” tour. “I know.”
Its good to see The Heat start to win like people expected. Now, all the have to do is win a ring this summer and the haters will multiply ten-fold. Get your popcorn ready…
