Why does this have to be so hard? No UCE! Any CE sent needs to be opt-in and the sender needs to have a code or password and the opt-in documented, time/date/IP address used/etc. ISPs need take a more active part in the controling of spam, by only accepting messages with valid return email addresses, and sending a challenge to the sender if they are not on a "white list". If the email is valid, they can respond to be accepted. Any messages reported as spam by a large number of people are then deleted without notice. Users should be able to opt for having all mail from certain countries blocked if they choose so. I don't need email from anyone in Nigeria, Korea, or China at this point, so block them, please. And laws need to be passed that have teeth. Trying to protect the legit mailers is making the system ineffective. Legit mailers need to have documented opt-in addresses and they should be protected. Thank you!
