I think it is disgusting that I am now receiving two or three messages daily about penis enlargement and refinancing. I do not want these messages. I try to set up message rules to block them in my Outlook Express, but they just spell the words in 50 different ways, and I'm spending 30 minutes a day fretting about and dealing with this junk. It has changed the way I look at my computer. I have an eight-year-old son, and I can never let him learn to check email now. He risks getting enticed into pornography just from looking at personal email. How do I report these people who are using the dictionary to change the message subjects and contents daily? How do I report those who you cannot reply to? I'd be happy to print this crap and fax it to someone, if I knew it would make a difference. Replying to the emails puts me at risk of getting even more, so I just keep trying to block senders and delete the junk. This is horrible! I just got one that claims "This email is sent in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003," complete with a "click here" to remove yourself from the database within 10 business days. I don't trust it. I'd like to forward it to you folks to check it out. I tried to call them in Las Vega, Nevada, but the company "BULK MARKETING, Inc." doesn't exist at *REDACTED PERSONAL INFORMATION* Las Vegas, NV 89128. Who do we report this crap to? How do we stop the people that are using this stupid act to violate the law and people's privacy? Thanks!
