Much Ado About Spamming
July/August 2003 (vol. 7 no. 4)
pp. 7-9

The worldwide attempt to reduce spam has reached a new, more emphatic, level of action in recent weeks. Legislators and government ministries from Washington, D.C., to Canberra, Australia, are introducing bills and releasing reports in an effort to stop spammers from clogging the networks, and these efforts are gaining publicity. Unfortunately, much of the proposed legislation is focused on highly unfeasible "do not spam" lists of end users, and much of the attendant media coverage is focused on the nuisance factor felt by end users, rather than the draining of network-wide resources that has far greater collective impact.
