Spam Volume Threatening E-Mail's Future

from the well,-that's-useless dept

The FTC’s big “spam summit” is underway, and as expected, it seems fairly useless so far. Mostly, it’s just people saying what we already know: spam sucks, and it’s costing people a ton of time and money, while making email much less useful than it can be. So what do we do? It appears all these “experts” don’t have a very good idea. So, in the end, the spam summit leaves us back where we started. They’ve also been saying this is a chance for spammers to have their say as well, but I’m not sure how many spammers are actually showing up at this thing. The only one they quote doesn’t have very much interesting to say.
