Jail a spammer

It can't happen fast enough. Did you get a...

...stock solicitation? Send it to the SEC.

...Nigerian (or "advance fee") scam? Sic the U.S. Secret Service on 'em.

...offer to sell prescription drugs without a prescription? (This seems to be the bulk of my spam lately...) Try the FDA.

(via the helpful folks at the U of Oregon...)

Starting tomorrow, the FTC is soliciting comments on CAN-SPAM. My comment, of course, is, "Why couldn't they pass a law that works? Say, one with capital penalties and enforcement provisions?" But if you want them to know what a shambles that law was (you're getting less spam, right?) they want to know at regulations.gov.
