1) We do not need a National Do Not Email Registry. It won't stop the worst offenders and ALL unsolicited commercial email should be flat out banned, so there should be no need to check a list to see who you can and can not SPAM! 2) Anyone reporting SPAM should receive a percentage of any judgement returned against a reported SPAMmer. 3) So far, everyone is referring to it as the YOU-CAN-SPAM Act... Overriding state SPAM laws was a great step backwards. All the exemptions built into the act are self defeating. I don't want to receive SPAM from anyone, period! I don't care if they are a corporation, a charity, a congrescritter or my own sister! As far as enforcement goes, the gov't must throw its considerable resources into the fight to route out the SPAMmers no matter where in the world they are hiding. 4) Any labeling requirements you impose will be the basis for systemwide banning of any email matching your criteria, so there is no way the SPAMmers will comply. In concept, it is a great idea.
