Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.
Why the hell doesn't congress stop the damned spam? Are the spam lobbyists so wealthy that congress won't give up feeding at their trough? I am sick, sick, sick of it. I wonder what can be done.
Because Congress can only pass legislation that affects the U.S., and the spam will just go offshore (or to .ca or .mx).
So the US can say "It's illegal in the US to send spam", and they may well do that, and the spammers will just pick up elsewhere. And the senders would be out of the jurisdiction of the US. We'd have no way to enforce it. We have no say in what happens in other countries.
If somebody at spammer.co.jp sends me spam to petdance.com, then who are you going to prosecute? Me, at petdance.com? Nobody's doing any forwarding.

Nobody, it's your problem/responsability :-)

I don't want anyone on the net blocking traffic for my benefit. The last thing I need is someone at, say, UU.net saying "Oh, this is a known spammer's IP address, we'll block all traffic." Why should I trust UU.net to know what's good and what's bad?
Just look at all the realtime blackhole lists for examples of babies getting thrown out wit
