Can Spam Act Reduced Spam Merely 1%

Have you bought Viagra from your inbox? How about an online degree? Maybe started working from home? (The lack of links in this first paragraph is intentional.)

The Can Spam Act passed last year has done virtually nothing to stop unwanted emails. A study just completed says the Act resulted in a mere 1% drop in spam, barely a dent in your email inbox. Right now, estimates have us dealing with junk email at least an hour a day. How much time does it take you?

Our laws are not tough enough to stop the barrage of unwanted emails. Getting past spam filters is almost child's play.

What to do? Try capitalism. Don't buy the stuff or click on the links. Eventually, it will go away. Not satisfied with that answer? Talk to your legislator. Tell them to stop it by passing laws that can be enforced with stiff penalties.

In the meantime, I just click "delete." Now if I could only figure out a way to do that with my tax bill.
