  • Very very illegal

    The only fair penalty for sending it (at least in my opinion) is life in prison. With no trial. Just straight to the slammer to rot! That's what they deserve.

    Yakka foob mog. Grug pubbawup zink wattoom gazork. Chumble spuzz. Wogga muk gubba pum wup! Boo! Gop! Spiff? Bleck bleck!

    Why do we get spam message. It is for marketing consumers. Also their are people who don't know to prevent spam messages. There are some message that contains bad things. For example there is really needed spams like sales, but some ways they say to send information about them. If they don't know they can loose their own information. This gives bad affect so it should be outlawed.

    He free ride E-mail spam is unique in that the receiver pays so much more for it than the sender does. For example, AOL has said that they were receiving 1.8 million spams from Cyber Promotions per day until they got a court injunction to stop it. Assuming that it takes the typical AOL user only 10 seconds to identify and discard a message, that's still 5,000 hours per day of connect time per day spent discarding their spam, just on AOL. By contrast, the spammer probably has a T1 line that costs him about $100/day. No other kind of advertising costs the advertiser so little, and the recipient so much. The closest analogy I can think of would be auto-dialing junk phone calls to cellular users (in the US, cell phone users pay to receive as well as originate calls); you can imagine how favorably that might be received

    It is terrible Spam can cause real damage. If you wonder how a mere electronic letter can be harmful, first recall the usual contents of spam letters. Along with intrusive commercials and newsletters from electronic shops you have used only once, every email user is also at risk of receiving spam letters advertising pornography, weapons, and other questionable content. Although it might be safe in the United States of America, the European Union, and some western countries, it can be illegal in more religious countries—especially in Islamic states. A citizen of such a country who has received a spam letter with porn can be thrown in jail for nothing. A person who never looked for such content might be accused of consuming it. This is not to mention child pornography, which is also distributed and advertised through spam messages (IFR). - See more at:

  • It's all garbage.

    The spam messages I've seen have almost without exception advertised stuff that's worthless, deceptive, and partly or entirely fraudulent. (I include the many MLMs in here, even though the MLM-ers rarely understand why there's no such thing as a good MLM.) It's spam software, funky miracle cures, off-brand computer parts, vaguely described get rich quick schemes, dial-a-porn, and so on downhill from there. It's all stuff that's too cruddy to be worth advertising in any medium where they'd actually have to pay the cost of the ads. Also, since the cost of spamming is so low, there's no point in targeting your ads, when for the same low price you can send the ads to everyone, increasing the noise level the rest of us have to deal with.

  • Can barely help the advertising industry

    As junk mail is sent, whatever is being advertised is never given a second glance by the receiver. This proves to be a waste of paper as well - putting more pressure on our wood-cutting industries as well. It also adds unnecessary work for the Post. As you can see, the downsides heavily outweigh the benefits of junk mail. That's why it is called 'junk' mail.

  • No Interenet junk mail should not be illegal.

    As long as the content of so called "Internet Junk Mail" is legal material in the country in which it is received it should be legal to send. One the great aspects of the Internet is the fact it provides equal access to all businesses, big and small alike. It it the great equalizer in the business world.

  • No, junk mail shouldn't be illegal.

    Junk mail doesn't cause anyone any harm. It may be annoying to get but you are not being forced to read it. It is just an advertisement. This is the same as asking if advertisements are illegal because they are out there and no one wants to read them. Junk mail is just an advertisement.

  • No, its just like real junk mail

    I think if you look at it from a perspective of normal junk mail. The people have a right to send you stuff,but a filter would be nice. The problem is that you can't go through it yourself efficiently. I think a software that exactly works would be nice. The filters that are in place, just don't work.

  • Junk mail is mostly innocent.

    Internet junk mail should not be illegal. This is because it is mostly innocent. It is full of sales ads. Although these ads can be annoying, unless they are harmful, they should not be illegal. It is better to allow junk mail to continue to be freely available online, just as it is in the postal mail.
