I Hate Spam!
I could easily rant for a few pages, but Id rather offer a few suggestions. First, if you need help hiding email addresses from spammers, theres another page on that.
Second, if youre in the United States, write your Congressional delegation. Dont just complain about spam: instead, suggest they listen to lobbyists from CAUCE (the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email and get their opinions on relevant bills. Congress has led the world in overhyped, empty gestures because they have no idea what their anti-spam measures really do, and they wont listen to experts unless they realize their constituents do so.
Third, I offer my personal anti-spam statement for your consideration.
Spammers, please note:
Please note point #2. Ultimately, the only way to stop spam is to make it uneconomical.
Besides, when the sellers are afraid of the light in the first place, the odds are high that the products are of questionable value, or even unsafe. Dont deal with spammers!
