Re: Spam. Again.. -- and blocking net blocks?
Sorry for top posting, but I'm late for work... -- Agreed. I believe that society dictates that the accumulation of personal wealth is one of the most important factors to most people who have the means to generate it in abundance. Any avenue to make a buck will supersede any legislation or "Please don't do that because it's not (nice|safe|legal|honest|<your_word_of_the_day_here>)". Until spam is no longer synonymous with generating revenue or growing personal wealth, it's here to stay. Until drugs are legal, or dealers are killed if caught, the fact that dealers know pushing that crap on the streets is harmful, it doesn't matter. The need, or desire to have more money than the next guy is more important to someone than the other people who exist outside their little box. Different circumstances, but the same thing at the end of the day, I think. > It won't fix the problem. The world needs to change to stop > driving the possible gains from sending spam. Its an eduction/social issue. -- -JaL "AFAIK, You think I'm a BOFH for continually bashing you over the head with a clue-by-four.
