I don't care about spam I really don't. Spam's easy to spot, and both Claris Emailer and Yahoo! mail come with excellent ways to delete wide swaths of it at once. Moreover, I fear that any "solutions" will be worse than the problem, and will inevitably encroach on some of the freedom that's made computers so innovative. Cory Doctorow spoke with Bruce Sterling about this, and comes out in a similar position. Incidently, have I ever mentioned how deeply unimpressed I continue to be by Sterling? As a writer he was merely boring, but as a commentator he is boring and dumb, an unforgivable combination.
