I'm not sure if this is a good start...
I would rather have seen the WWW take care of this problem in and by itself. (They/we still can if it's worked on vigorously.)
The old adage "give 'em an inch and they'll take a mile" applies here.
When & if SPY BLOCK becomes law, who's going to investigate and enforce the law(s)?
FCC, FBI, CIA, NSA, Home Land Security... or all of them...
Or will we have a new agency - say, the "Web Wacky Wranglers of the World Wide Web". (And we'll pay for it with a penny a click?)
Then how long will it be until the United Nations wants a piece of the action (and have the USA pay for it of course).
I'm curious as to when was the last time anyone reading this thread personally chastised a local business for spamming, or e-mailed a company that they might due business with for advertising with spammers? (I've only managed to clang on a couple in the last year.)
Just a few "odd" thoughts to consider.
The only easy day was yesterday.
