Alan Ralsky, sometimes called the Grandfather of Spam, defended his position in an interview with the Detroit News by arguing that spamming was a "perfectly legal business." Shortly afterwards, this article was posted on Slashdot, a popular technology news site. In response to Ralsky's remarks, the members of Slashdot posted his personal information and urged people to use this information to subscribe Ralsky to a number of free mailing subscriptions for the purpose of sending junk mail to his home. As a result, Ralsky's home received bags of mail daily.
