FTC Going After Spammers

from the it's-about-time dept

Admitting they've basically done nothing whatsoever about spam in the past, the FTC is now planning on going after spammers because they're just as sick as the rest of us at receiving so much junk mail. I'm not sure if it will do any good, or whether or not they'll really be able to catch many spammers, but it's nice to hear that someone has realized it's a problem.
