There is a lot here to read, including Castlecops' being shutdown. This blog by SiL is excellent and well worth your read.

2008: A Significant Year In The Fight Against Illegal Spammers

The year of 2008 represented the highest strings of arrests, prosecutions, sentencings and imprisonments of illegal spammers in the history of illegal spamming. 2007 was already a very bad year for spammers. 2008 continued this trend, all of which underscores the fact that people really are fed up with hearing from spammers, and that spammers will go to jail if they continue to spam illegally or engage in identity theft or fraud.

And take a bow all the former Castlecops members here who contributed to making it such a good year. CC's volunteers were specifically credited in at least one of the announcements from law enforcement.
