The sooner we get legislation to shoot spammers the better. I hate the idea that someone is gathering gratuitous data about me and regurgitating it at some later date.

I mean, this isn't just random, somewhere they're linking YOU with Hush Puppies... who, BTW, make very nice shoes. At this very moment I'm wearing a pair of black leather HP boots that I bought in SA. Yeah yeah I know, image and all that, one day I'll add the rest of the black leather outfit...

It's testimony to the fact that at the moment, it isn't worth spammers' while to be too painstaking in cleaning their data.

While current thinking seems to be that charging e-postage will nearly eliminate this sort of thing, the volume of scattershot junk mail that I get in my mailbox leads me to a pessimistic outlook. But if it cuts spam down to 3-5 items per day, that would probably be a big improvement.

I wouldn't know for sure because I only get 1-2 spams per week. This is because my email provider is so fanatical about this that many of my friends and associates can't get email through to me!
