I'll be the first to admit it, I detest junk faxes almost as much as junk mail. At least with junk mail, it costs me only time, not new toner and increased maintenance on my fax machine.
But, Fax.com has a public service of locating missing children. Admirable, but I suspect the number of missing children faxes pales in comparison to the number of commercial faxes it sends out.
Fax.com claims it is being hounded out of existence. Private Citizen's website lists its campaign against Fax.com, and noted that the company may soon fold, but remerge under a different name to do the same thing.
Don't you just love it?
Apparently, Fax.com's fight isn't over yet, though, so don't get your fax machine's hopes up. Seems as though the company has started to fight back. It is suing those who sue it, and hounding lawyers who represent businesses that receive junk faxes by "turning them in" to the State Bar. For what, I'm not exactly sure. Last time I checked, it was Fax.com who was in trouble, not the lawyers suing them.
There are a couple of crusaders out there, who post about their efforts.
Or, you can just hook your fax machine up to your computer, and turn on WinFax Pro to be your fax machine, and then set the software not to print out any faxes. Then, you just hit the delete button.
