Spam law will come as relief

June 01, 2003

Re "Plans to Can Real Estate Spam" by Lew Sichelman (May 18):

Although we still do not have a magic wand to eliminate this annoying "spammer" harassment, at least the article was reassuring that I am not alone and that hope is on the horizon.

I just turned on my computer, had 85 new messages, more than 40 of which were spam, many real estate related.

I have a policy of deleting those I do not recognize or look suspicious. However, it has increased my daily e-mail time substantially, time that is so precious to all of us.

Now if only there was something that we, the oppressed cyber-users, could do until the do-not-call-list number is published and the remaining laws go into effect.
