I earn at least 50% of my pay via the internet now a days and every day I have to delete over 70% of my email because it is SPAM. The biggest problems I see are: 1) "Opt out" links simply confirm that the email address is valid, so many people do not want to click on them. 2) I might get over 100 email from the same company, trying to sell me the same product over and over, but each was sent by an individual, hired as an independant contractor. therefore "opting out" does me no good. These companies should be fined heavily!!! We need to get serious about this cancer plagueing the internet, NOW!
