There are many legitimate mailers who only mail to people who have opted to receive their email. It is important to not put these people out of business by making regulations or penalties too harsh. The people that need to be stopped are the spammers who make no efforts to honor opt out requests or who hijack other people's resources to send mail. It is important to understand the difference between a legitimate email marketer and a spammer.
