What's always puzzled me is that all these spams lead back, ultimately, to someone selling something. Where law enforcement agencies bother to act at all, they tend to go after the monkey, not the organ grinder. Surely it would be comparitively trivial to track down and prosecute the people selling the products  - the people who are paying the spammer to spam? Sticking a few of them behind bars would seem to be potentially easier and more effective than chasing the spammers, an activity that's been demonstrably ineffective.
