  • Never underestimate the power of threat of castration to stop people from doing bad things.

    Seriously, if we made laws, worked with other nations on them, and enforced them, we would go a long way to decreasing spam.
    • We have a law that forbids spam here in Denmark, it is a part of a EU legislation AFAIK. I have notified the local 'folkeregister' (the office where they keep tabs on you, your whereabouts, why you are married to etc) that I do not want any unsolicited mails, either normal, e- or by phone. There is a fairly stiff penalty for breaking the law - I complained to a local bank who (due to an error in their filtering programmes) sent me an ad for their fine new something-or-other, and they excused profusely and sent me a couple of bottles of wine in compensation [now if I just had a sip for every spam I have recieved from abroad - ouch my liver ;-]
      If this was implemented world-wide, the savings of bandwith would be enormous. Of course it would have to be so that I could just complain to my local authorities, who would take care of prosecuting etc.
      SNAP - wkae up stoopid! You are daydreaming again!
