To be specific: Instead of sending out one untraceable advertisement for their product, a spammer will send out ten advertisements for ten products, nine of which are completely innocent bystanders. How can you tell who to prosecute? The real spammers will go completely unchecked; meanwhile, Anders Sandburg will get sued into the ground every time he reviews a nootropic.
