spam III

Excellent set of articles here about spam. It’s a huge problem, and it’s likely to only get worse. I do wish to have something change about it, but I’m not sure what. When people start talking about “do not spam” lists, or requiring email accounts to be traceable to the people who own them, privacy becomes an issue. I don’t like spam, but I do like my privacy. Anything that requires more control and more public information about me simply bothers me.

It’s probably only a matter of time until services like AIM become portals for unwanted solicitations, as well. The problem is beyond the technology. It’s a people problem, which is always more difficult to solve.

Anyone know the solution?

    How about those stupid pop-up messenger ads that are built into XP?

    Simple: Pull all wires out of walls and do not check mail box.

    Ha, Ha. That would solve it, for sure.
