Spam

I bought another multi-pack of Spam today. It's Tigger's favorite breakfast meat, now.

Congress sent an anti-spam bill to Bush to sign into law.

The side-bar to this, in the print version of the paper, was a list of Tips on "How to cut the junk." The last tip:

The government wants your spam. Forward unwanted or deceptive emails to uce@ftc.gov, where federal regulators are targeting the most egregious marketers.


And they wonder why we have no confidence in this bill to do any good.

I'm looking forward to reading accounts of how long it took to bring the ftc.org smtp servers to a crashing halt.
