Re: Spam Control Considered Harmful

I agree that spam is a problem but one that the industry can regulate on its
own.  We do not need state or federal legislation to control spam.  If
companies are really worried about it then lets get together and come up
with a common solution.  A solution that is as fair to the ISPs that only
have 100 subscribers up to the UUNets and AOLs of the internet.  I'll get
off my soapbox now.
