A proposed national "Do Not Email" Registry will be a major failure, and will not be of significant benefit to computer users, just as the "Can Spam" Act has been a terrible failure. Stricter regulations need to be implemented instead of the lukewarm "opt-out" features of each act. Senders of unsolicited and unwanted email messages, especially Senders using foreign resources, will simply ignore a Do Not Email Registry, as they have done to the provisions of the Can Spam Act. And the enforcement actions of the Federal Trade Commission have thus far been insufficient, inadequate, and ineffective. I would suggest an "Opt-In" approach instead to better achieve results desired.
