I take issue with being called pro-spam. It's kind of like calling anyone
who thinks Clinton should be impeached anti-democrat, or perhaps
pro-republican.

I am pro-law.  If you want to ban spam, there is a way to do that: People
banned junk faxes, and banned telemarketers from calling your cell phone.
However, they did that by passing laws. Not by taking the law into their
own hands.

Secondly, the internet isn't a lawless place. There are already laws which
control how you must behave. Especially if you might have access to other
peoples private electronic communications.  We don't need more privacy
laws. We just need to enforce those we have.  Unfortunately, many people
think they can do whatever they please.  I suppose if the laws aren't
enforced, then they are right.

[note that I don't take issue with being called a nut ;-)  I think Clinton
should be impeached, too.]
