"Re: CAN-SPAM Act Rulemaking, Project No. R411008." FIRST - This ACT is so ambiguous in its attempt to cover all situations and circumstances, that it now directly concerns NONE of them. SECOND - NO ONE I know of can control VIRUS / WORM / TROJAN-initiated (V/W/T-initiated) email, therefore EVERYTHING stated in the ACT needs to be revised to EXCLUDE (V/W/T-initiated) email or it will be total unfair to all concerned.. In regards to FROM: and SUBJECT: identification, If I can't receive a response from the sender, using just the information s/he provides in the email (not from a website I must go to), s/he is in violation and we should all be allowed to assess his/her FINE AMOUNT in a class-action-type activity. The finely-honed intent of the email is not as important to me as what I feel I have gained by receiving it (similar to 'purient-interest' tests for pornography). If I have learned information I deem valuable to me, then I don't mind paying the price of having to be subjected to 'a sales pitch.' .
