Will the Real Spam King Please Stand Up?

Dan Tynan writes on PC World:

As more and more spammers are arrested, prosecuted, and sued under state and federal antispam statutes, there's one thing you can count on: Someone somewhere will invariably call the targeted spammer a "spam king."

It seems the bulk e-mail industry has more kings than a pinochle deck. But who is really the king of kings? The following ten spammers are all heavyweight contenders for the crown.

Which one truly deserves the title of King? Read on to find out.

Note: The real spam kings are Russian criminals who control the most prolific spam botnets on the planet. -ferg
