Bernard Shifman is a computer consultant, 'moron spammer' and quick to threaten litigation when reported to his ISP for sending junk mail.

One victim, Neil Schwartzman, has turned the tables with SpamFlames, a site dedicated to exposing Mr. Shifman's antics. It's very funny. And unlike the formerly famous revenge site PsychoExGirlfriend, no-one is questioning whether it's a hoax.

Will Schwartzman succeed in stopping the spammeister? Almost certainly not, but who cares - certainly not Mr. Shifman, now very famous indeed, with Spamflame namechecks cropping up at Slashdot, Good Morning SiliconValley,and TechDirt. He gets another 15 minutes in the limelight, courtesy of The Register. ®
