Brian Flemming is trying to spread a deliberately made-up story about an e-mail spammer who was murdered by having a can of Spam shoved down his throat. I say, if it convinces one spammer to stop, it's well worth the lie.
(David Letterman once had a bit where he was going to try to spread a rumor, and invited the audience to help pick the rumor. They settled on "Dan Rather and Peter Jennings were secretly married recently in South America".)
