Spamming is one offence I would happily use hanging to discourage. A few spammers swinging might get some of this junk out of my mail box.

Spam is a man made pest, a cancer hard to eradicate. People who spread it are the terrorists of the web and punishment should be severe. Every victory scored in shutting these nasty elements down is welcome.

This spam, that spam. Spam in tins, spam not in tins, spam on the net, spam in your mail box. Vile, unscrupulous, spam on topic, spam off topic. All must be banned.

The U.S. authorities should open a e-mail address where we can forward all the spam we receive - maybe this will give the "authorities" some idea of just how bad this corrupts our computers. I am sure they know, but it would allow us to strike back, which would make me feel I could express my indignation

To the Marion:

Try "Spamcop". It is exactly for this purpose - to get rid of SPAM.

Well if they were a "significant" source of SPAM worldwide, I have not seen my spam drop even 1%... I wonder if we will ever see a TRUE significant SPAM operation shut down that will all of a sudden drop our SPAM by 50% overnight.

Thus, spam in my inbox dropped by one percent.
