Legislative Relief

I'm not so sure that is a technology problem to be solved at
all. I'm more concerned, frankly, with the junk mail that ends
up in my snail-mail box than an occasional spam, no matter how
annoying it is.

I'm convinced that responsible actions on the part of the ISP
can remedy this type of behavior, even though it is after-the-fact
and reactive in nature.

As someone already mentioned, we need to stop thinking of the
Internet in US-centric fashions. The Internet spans continents
and has no regard for national boundaries or knee-jerk legislation.

Sorry; I just don't agree.

When one country passes legislation to deal with a situation, other
countries will often study that legislation as the basis for their own
new law. Somebody has to take the first step.

Anyway, the real solution is to make people aware that spamming is "not
nice" and a waste of time. Anything that generates some publicity for the
cause is good including national legislation.
