See Yahoo! news.

Not directly relevant to spam, but pretty close.

The federal government has more than 400,000 pages of evidence against fugitive Miami doctor Armando Angulo, taking up some two terabytes of digital space. (...) But at the urging of prosecutors, charges were dropped against the doctor because the evidence is simply taking up too much space on government servers.

We had a high profile multi-million dollar fraud case dismissed because prosecutors didn't want to sift through ten thousand pages of evidence.

So the newspaper suggested the best get-out-of-jail-free-card for criminals was make it so your case is so complex, they won't prosecute you :angry: :rolleyes:

...To me, the lesson is quite a bit more frightening than that -- it suggests that the stupider and/ or more prolific (worse) the spammer in terms of limiting the amount of evidence against her/ him, the more likely she/ he is to not be prosecuted! :shudder:
