Checking In On CAN SPAM… Still Nothing To Report

from the slooooooow-news-day dept

You know it’s a slow news day when about the most interesting story around is the fact that an anti-spam company has noticed (no, really?) that CAN SPAM hasn’t actually cut down on spam. In fact it’s working so poorly that spammers have even stopped pretending to comply with it. About one-half of one percent of all spam apparently now complies with CAN SPAM. Good thing we have that law, huh?
