Cory Doctorow posts a favorable review of a book about scambaiting. The comment thread is very interesting, evenly split between people who think scambaiting is funny and worthwhile and those who find it cruel and loathesome
Excellent piece questioning the ethics of 419 scambaiting and asking some participants tough questions about racism. "Is scambaiting a clever way to combat corrupt actors preying on desperate and foolish people? Or do some of the more derogatory baits say something about our darker selves, laying bare the divide between white and black, rich and poor, First World and Third?"
