    We have one, but they can't prosecute non-American offenders and they have to catch the person doing it, too...

    What we really need to do is have a more secure email system. But that's a while down the road, mainly because everyone would have to agree one 1 particular system and no body will be willing to compromise.

    I remember reading somewhere that if emails were charged at 1 cent per email the spammers would end up going broke.

    Yeah, that would work, too. But a lot of people would object to that even if it's a good idea...
