Well the numbers may need adjusting but please note that I
suggested measuring the average not burst - so if said person buys 30
minutes online his *average* rate would be (just) under the
2 Emails/minute threshold
If needed change the first threshold to 4/5 per minute and the second
threshold to 20 per minutes

True in many cases but the punishment should be reasonable
You could define SPAM as theft in Saudi-Arabia & then a a spammer would
probably have his right hand chopped off ...
A little common sense would probably be useful in matching the punishment
to the "crime"
