The Do Not Call list is one of the BEST things the US Government has done in my lifetime(50ys), although I still get annoying automated phone spam calls, they are greatly reduced. If you could effectively do that for the internet, I'm all for it. Please bear in mind that if you outlaw it here, they will use servers in other countries to circumvent domestic provisions. Increased privacy on social networks would also be nice. Any provisions should be technologically workable form a website design and smartphone capability point of view. Thank you, Citizen Robert
