MySpace has a lot of friends, and at least one enemy. The fake-friend aggregation site just won a hujungous judgment against a spammer for $230 million.

"Anybody who's been thinking about engaging in spam are going to say, `Wow, I better not go there,'" MySpace's chief security officer, Hemanshu Nigam, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "Spammers don't want to be prosecuted. They are there to make money. It's our job to send a message to stop them."

Somehow, we doubt we'll stop getting spam on myspace; we predict the war between spammers and myspace continues.
