RussiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most (in)famous spammer, Vardan Kushnir, 35, was dead in his apartment in downtown Moscow on Monday, July 25. Someone repeatedly smashed his head with a heavy object, authorities say, and then ransacked his entire apartment. The authorities have obviously got no clue as to who that someone might have been.
And, as a matter of fact, they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t seem to really care … But the Moscow-based media is awash with comments and speculations, expounding one simple, albeit largely irrational, theory: someone (ranging from God almighty to an irate IT office worker) finally punished Vardan Kushnir for his seemingly unstoppable spamming activities.
Russian-language media, both online and offline, has made little effort to conceal one central thought when dealing with the spammerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s demise: that somehow the late Mr. Kushnir got what he deserved.
Rumors he is in a special Hell where he must eternally consume bogus penis enlargement pills are unconfirmed.
