1. I believe that each individual who provides prrof of violation with adequate evidence should be rewarded with say 5% of the fine. 2. Without adequate funding, this is just another good idea that never gets implemented or enforced. I am afraid that e-mail will be history in just a few short years if not fixed now. 3. Enforce "Subject Line" and "From". The "From" address could be enforced by closing all open mail boxes of ISPs and only allow e-mail to be propigated from legetimate mail boxes. All ISPs where the mail passes should filter for legetimate "From" addresses and delete fraudelent mail. I would like to add No. 4. Why not charge 0.15 cents for every e-mail sent. Let the ISP have 0.05 cents, the Government have 0.05 cents and the recepient have 0.05 cents. Those who receive a lot of junk e-mail could pay for their internet connection with their reward. The government would have enough money to enforce e-mail rules and junk e-mailers would go out of business unless they were marketing legetimate products.
