Been there, done that, and it made no significant difference. Both J.D.
Falk and I put a lot of work into getting tough anti-spam legislation
passed, and we were successful. Here in California we now have jail time
for second-offense spammers. Does it make a damned bit of difference? No.
Was it worth trying? Yes, of course.
The conclusion I came to at the time was that the bond-posting
micropayment schemes were the only way out of the problem, and I haven't
seen anything to change my mind on that since. Whitelists are too
drastic, I think, but I'm slowly headed that way.
