Is the fix in? Nobody ever expected much out of the purported indignation of Congressional sponsors of anti-spam measures but the bill that everybody thinks has the best chance of passing does more to protect bulk e-mailers than to control the junk that comes into our mailboxes.
The solution to the spam mess will never be found in legislation. It’s going to take a huge, concerted grass roots movement that uses technology and every legal dirty trick that can be mustered to put the spammers out of business and to expose the greed that is behind most of our legislators.
Get outraged! It’s only going to get worse unless the Inernet community makes the culture and society look on spammers the same way we look at child molesters – which, through the increasingly perverted pornography they keep pushing, many of them in effect already are. Powered by Sidelines
