Government regulation would kill the net faster than a bug under a magnifying glass. The "governments" of would have no right meddling in such a thing, and any one of them who thinks they should make a quick buck off taxing the net should be thrown out of office on their butts. Now that I have that out of my system; Really, spam sucks. I don't know where it comes from. Every morning I wake up with a pipe of email about money making schemes and how to find lost cousins and I just want to punish whoever sent me it. Maybe instead of complaining to people like AGIS, we should go after the people who write the spamming software... or better yet, the people who distribute lists of email addresses. They are the root of the problem, and should be removed with extreme prejudice. I personally believe that no network internet provider should really have regulations as to what their customers do. They simply provide someone with bandwidth, how they use that bandwidth is their own business, but when it starts to harm other machines and waste resources of people who are NOT on their network, then service should be discontinued.
