I am appalled by the number of unsolicited e-mails I receive daily for pornography, male enhancement, advertisements, etc. It appears that these people have the "right" to invade my privacy, but I do not have the "right" to stop them without infringing on their "rights". I find this to be patently unfair and I don't care what the lawyers say, what the liberal judicial says and most of all, what the liberal politicians say about their rights to invade my privacy. Where are my rights? Do you have any idea how many manhours are spent in this country just deleting this crap? I don't know if the technology is available - Bill Gates may be able to develop it if it isn't - but why can't all unsolicited e-mail messages that are unopened and deleted, be automatically sent back to the sender and they cannot legally block all the returned e-mails? This will serve several purposes - they will have to delete all the returns the same as we do - this may be enough incentive to make them take our e-mail addresses off the list. Furthermore, is the technology available for our computers to automatically have the ability to block unopened, deleted messages that have been sent more than twice from even getting into our e-mail account and being sent back to the sender? The addresses these people use are ridiculous. By changing or adding a letter or number, they can recycle the same e-mail thousands of times. Can something be done to force them to send a valid e-mail address with an internet providers name such as .aol, .msn, .verizon, etc.? These are my comments.
