Agreed - the NSA/GCHQ could give themselves some positive PR for a change by not just taking down a bot network, but finding and getting the perpetrators arrested. Will all the info they collect, they must be able to partner with Microsoft and anti-virus companies to work all the way back to the control servers and trace the owners. If 80% of the internet is spam, it'll save them disk space if they take down a few spam-spewing botnets, and speed up the net for everyone.
