Question A1. I'm more interested in not receiving Unsolicited emails than receiving Commercial emails. Question A3: Yes. From my calculations nearly 99.9% of the Unsolicited emails (including Commercial advertisements or promotions) are already listed in the better Blocking Lists. Many of the Unsolicited senders are listed at www.spamhaus.org/rokso. These Unsolicited senders--of commercial advertisements or promotions--are Known, Known, Known (have been known for years). Question D1: Aggravated: Yes, any email from Unsolicited senders no matter what the "practice". The implementation of a National Do Not Email Registry: Yes, if it starts to Diminish (keyword) the spam within say 1 month. The implementation of a system for rewarding those who supply information about CAN-SPAM violations: Yes. At least name the best of the best Blocking Lists and web-based email providers that Continuously Contain or hopefully Diminish Unsolicited email. The effectiveness and enforcement of the CAN-SPAM Act: Simply being listed at spamhaus.org seems to be an excellent "identification" of Unsolicited senders that aggravate. Yet, a large majority of these Unsolicited senders continue to be in business; many for years. Not too distant past lawsuits, present lawsuits, and jail time for Unsolicited senders bears out how excellent the spamhaus.org/rokso listing is and how the CAN-SPAM Act has NOT greatly Dimished the top 200 senders of all spam. I'd like the FTC and web-based email providers to emphasize the Spamhaus.org/rokso listed Unsolicited senders as a major target for lawsuits/subpoenas--as is possibly occuring the week of October 10, 2004 with the six lawsuits by AOL, Microsoft, Earthlink, and Yahoo.
