CAN-SPAM Act Rulemaking, Project No. R411008 To the Commissioners, I applaud your efforts to curb the problem of unsolicited bulk email. While there are problems with e-mail ads I do not feel that the government should interfere with business in general. The market place works best when left to it's own devices. There are programs out there that one can use to limit or stop an e-mail from reaching it's intended target. This is the route a person should use. Since switching to a cable type ISP my e-mail problems have almost vanished. Please make people aware of these things instead of regulating us out of business. There are so many problems and costs associated with this idea, and so much damage done to consumers and businesses alike, that I feel I must urge you to consider this matter most carefully. Requirement of the use of suppression lists will seriously damage many of the legitimate publications and in the end will harm or put out of business many wonderful companies. Respectfully, Robert Rodgers New York, U.S.A.
