How You CAN The Spammers

By The Grok
January 15th, 2004

Ask and ye shall receive: how to report spammers under the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.

What a bunch of conscientious humans you guys are!! Seems lots of you are dying to report those scummy spammers to whatever appropriate agency will take your compliant. Either that, or whistle-blowing is next on the career agenda.

When I reviewed the basic implications of the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 last time, it didn’t even cross my mind to include information on how to report offenders. But it crossed your minds … and you very kindly brought it to my attention (“Hey Grok, shape up and get with the program!”).

Apparently, the matter didn’t cross very many other minds out there, because it wasn’t exactly easy to tiptoe my way through the Internet tulips to discover a useful answer.

But green is the color of persistence!

  6. I don’t understand why people spam anyways. I know when my inbox is filled with spam if they are trying to sell something it gets deleted immediately. Kind of the same way I feel about telemarketers.

  7. We can never get rid of spam, because everyone has a different definition of what spam is.
