    ...you happen to be the state attorney general and are running for Governor. In this case the potential governor has been championing anti spam measures but insists that his emails do not violate them becaue they are not "deceptive."


    I dsilike spamm and spammers. I don't care for this. Read all about it and decide for yourself.

    Not if you include this at the bottom of the email.

    What should be added is, "But of course, since we now know you have a valid email address, we will send you solicitations for contibutions, because we can do what we want."

    Exactly Bob, never but never but never reply to any sort of spam.

    I say death to spammers (or maybe just life without parole)!

    I would never advise anyone to respond to unsolicited emails in anyway. That includes responding to indicate a desire to unsubscribe. It tells the spammer that the email address is valid and invites more spam from that source anyone they sell their lists to.

    as for capital punishment for spammers---it's tempting. Very tempting.

    I like it!! A poll to see if we're awake. I think any spammer should have their finger nails pulled out one by one while be forced to listen to Donny Osmond music.

    tempting true, but I prefer an eternal hell of them reading email after email until their delete finger has carpal tunnel.....


    I really dislike spam, it doesn't matter if its deceptive or just trying to be informative. Its a waste of my time and I really don't have that much surplus time to waste. If I want on an email distribution, I ask specifically for that. And when it no longer suits me, I have it discontinued. The reputable ones work that way and work just fine.
