Internet spam master tries a new spin

Published on .

Cyber Promotions, the bulk e-mailer that has incited the wrath of online service users worldwide, said it will launch the first Internet service provider to allow users to send as much bulk e-mail, or spam, as they want for a single monthly fee. The new company hopes to be a welcome home to the thousands of companies that send out spam, only to be booted off their existing ISPs for violating system rules. Cyber Promotions has been sued by (and has countersued) most of the major online services, particularly America Online, as a result of its practices.
