3: We change the economics of spamming in some other fashion.  I've been
advocating taking up a collection - every ISP that has an inbound spam problem
kicks in just $100 - if there's 4,000 ISP's in the US (including all those
mom&pop sites with E-bay routers), that's a pretty chunk of change.  We then
hire a few representatives from <choose ethnic organized crime> to "explain our
point of view" to a few of the aforementioned 200 big offenders...

Unfortunately, there's these concepts of "legality" and "morality" involved... :)
