    ?! The Government Do Not Call List is new in the States. Telemarketers
    MUST remove the numbers or else face stiff fines. Apparently 750,000 ppl
    signed up on the first day. I think the FCC is taking the list very
    seriously tho.

    True, but some of the bills are so bad that anti-spam activists fear they
    would actually make the problem worse.

    A majority of the bills in Congress allow for "Opt-Out" verses "Opt-In".
    Basically, this means that if the "Opt-Out" law passes and the spammer
    actually follows the law (yeah right!) they are allowed to send you a
    message with "If you don't want to hear from me, click here." So, anyone
    can send you a message atleast once.

    With Opt-In (the way it should be) they need to send you a msg saying if
    you want to hear from us click here and if you don't click then they
    can't send you any messages.

    John:

    I have two machines on line.
    This one and a very discreet one.

    I average forty to sixty emails a day. 80% are rubbish. After all how many
    Viagra pills can you take. Weight loss pills, No I don't need porno, no
    mortgages.
    The other machine is emails only, no surfing, no newsgroups, NO Rubbish.
    It's stricktly a newsnet amongst several photographers and myself.
    So does the listing origionate from newsgroups by some form of spambot or
    collector? Whose got the latest and greatest anti-SPAM software for those
    floating addresses....?

    AL

    The US government likes to raise money. Let's see if someone in the
    government proposes a cure for spam that involves placing a 2 to 5 cent
    tax on every e-mail sent to the US.
