Hey, just wanted to say that the comments are fixed now… I had some problems with spamming of my comments. So I tried to lock it down. I think I’ve found a happy medium for now, but if I haven’t, please ignore any comments you might see from “onlinecasino” or other odd places. I can only go in and delete them so often, so it might take me a few hours to make them “disappear”.
Spam ARRRRAGH… What’s Bush and Kerrys’ position on the Bane of the Internet world??
And if your comments don’t appear right away, don’t fret! They are probably just awaiting the “this is not spam” stamp of approval from me.
Well, during the Bush administration, the federal government passed the CAN-Spam Act, although the name is kind of deceptive.
( This Act may be cited as the `Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act of 2003′, or the `CAN-SPAM Act of 2003′.)
Dunno what Kerry’s, or the Democrats’, position is on this.
Heres a summary of the Bill, from the same site:
The Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act requires unsolicited commercial e-mail messages to be labeled (though not by a standard method) and to include opt-out instructions and the sender’s physical address. It prohibits the use of deceptive subject lines and false headers in such messages. The FTC is authorized (but not required) to establish a “do-not-email” registry. State laws that require labels on unsolicited commercial e-mail or prohibit such messages entirely are pre-empted, although provisions merely addressing falsity and deception would remain in place. The CAN-SPAM Act takes effect on January 1, 2004.
BTW, why can’t I edit my own comment?
