I have had internet access since 1997 and a personal email account since 1999. In 2004, I was one of the first to get access to Google's new email service called gmail. While one could argue that Google's gmail service has superior filtering capabilities, I believe the CAN-SPAM act has made it a much cleaner inbox. I believe the CAN-SPAM act is sufficient in its current state, but can be more effective if we modify the wording to allow the following: 1.) The ability to sue the spammers 2.) Email must immediately cease after an unsubscribe action is performed (with the exception of an unsubscribed successfully email notification) 3.) A rate limit to how much email can be sent (1 marketing email from the company per 32 or 48 hours). This rate limit should cover all marketing types of emails the company may have. (Most companies have several marketing lists. This rate limit should apply to all lists in collective.)
