Last Day at Quark

This is my Last day at Quark. To be more specific its my 410th Day. Beginning of a new journey which in turn is the ending of earlier one which started on 14th June 2004.
So this is last blog I'm posting from Quark. I'll miss it. All the blog posts I made from here I'll really miss. All the moments I shared here with my collegues with myself are simpally something I'd love to remember.
I've to go. So Bye and see ya from Microsoft My new destination.

Russia’s Biggest Spammer Brutally Murdered

Vardan Kushnir, notorious for sending spam to each and every citizen of Russia who appeared to have an e-mail, was found dead in his Moscow apartment on Sunday, Interfax reported Monday. He died after suffering repeated blows to the head.

Kushnir, 35, headed the English learning centers the Center for American English, the New York English Centre and the Centre for Spoken English, all known to have aggressive Internet advertising policies in which millions of e-mails were sent every day.

In the past angry Internet users have targeted the American Language center by publishing the Center’s telephone numbers anywhere on the Web to provoke telephone calls. The Center’s telephone was advertised as a contact number for cheap sex services, or bargain real estate sales.

Another attack involved hundreds of people making phone calls to the American English Center and sending it numerous e-mails back, but Vardan Kushnir remained sure of his right to spam, saying it was what e-mails were for.

Under Russian law, spamming is not considered illegal, although lawmakers are working on legal projects that could protect Russian Internet users like they do in Europe and the U.S.
