Spam adversaries to meet, debate

Friday, 21 May 2004, 8:45 AM EST

Two bitter adversaries in the spam wars said Thursday they have agreed to meet face-to-face in a public debate next month.

The debate will be held at the upcoming Email Technology Conference in San Francisco. It will feature Internet marketer Scott Richter, who has been accused of being one of the world's most prolific spammers, and SpamCop founder Julian Haight. The two sides are currently embroiled in a legal battle involving SpamCop's spam blacklist service, which Richter says violates the rights of his online marketing firm, OptInRealBig.com.

Lawyers for both sides said they have agreed to allow the debate because they believe it will not focus on the lawsuit. However, early comments make it highly unlikely that either Richter or Haight will be able to avoid the issue.
