Can the Spam

October 01, 2002

There is a simple way to get rid of commercial spam ("State Prosecutors Trying to Delete Spam," Sept. 28). Make it illegal to hire someone to send unsolicited advertising (including political) on behalf of another person or company (kind of like pandering). The advertisers must have their contact information, or some way to sign up (in the case of porn sites) on the spam or they wouldn't be able to make a sale. Hit them with big fines and they'll stop hiring the spammers, who will then go out of business. Just follow the money.
