Not even gangsters are safe from spam

Daren Briscoe reported in Newsweek that gangs are using the web to recruit members and communicate. But gosh, they have to deal with spam too:

But the Web has also given rival gangs a new, less violent way to settle scores—flooding each other's sites with junk e-mail. Stalker says he spends hours every week deleting threatening or insulting messages from other gangs from his Web site. Not even a gangster is safe from spam.

I wonder: if you're a gangster, maybe you have a somewhat wider range of incentives you can use to discourage spammers?
