    If that guy spammed 700 mill worth of facebook messages, I doubt we run any risk.

    I realize the contradiction here but I must admit I always try and "spam with style" in other words I try and direct my spam emails to only those that actually could give a damn about what I am emailing about. At the end of the day if we spam so bad that the internet no longer becomes useable then we will drive advertising dollars away.

    One other quick thing is that it does suck that american spammers are hit with this huge fines but we have no recourse from international spammers leaving them free and with out american competition.

    Just my 2cents (CLICK HERE TO MAKE IT 4cents!!)

    Any mailer who is worth his weight will be sued or threatened to be sued.

    Oh and Marieke your opinion doesnt really matter when it comes to the can-spam act. However something tells me you have nothing to worry about. lmfao
