Spammer site shut down

In our recent post talking about exposing those who buy from spam, I linked to an article over at Spam Kings. There is an update there on a site at the end of that article which was pointed to.

The issue was a spammer was showing thousands of users' data for free, but this update tells us that the hosting service for the spammer has shut them down. It is probably underway right now that the spammer is looking for (and will find) a new host.

Sorry, I should clarify that while the site shut down may have been of a spammer, a better description was that of someone who sells lists to spammers. In terms of the distinction between who is a bigger jerk, the line is a fine one I guess.
