Facebook has won yet another massive judgment against a spammer who already owes $234 million to MySpace. A California federal judge on Thursday granted Facebook’s request for a default judgment against Sanford Wallace, who is known to have been involved with spamming since the mid-1990s and with junk faxing before that.
