FTC Fixing SPAM?

Is the Federal Trade Commission really stopping SPAM? Is the FTC and all of our tax dollars doing any good reducing SPAM? Why do we even bother to pretend? Did the FTC assume that its publicity alone would scare the spammers into quitting? The FTC is quite arrogant in that case. They spent over a year having meetings trying to define what SPAM actually was; then when we ask for a progress report as the SPAM had increased they say: "We are working on it, we need to redefine SPAM." Why? Well so they can make their cases stick? As if lawsuits will help? You see folks the FTC is as impotent as the Viagra SPAM we get each day. The FTC is still to this day debating with themselves what a commercial e-mail is? CAN-SPAM Act was an utter disappointment. Once again it proves the government does nothing very well.

The CAN-SPAM Act was well intentioned indeed, but today still over 75% of all emails received are SPAM, which the FTC says is good as a dent is being made; it use to be 90%. But the reduction was not due to the FTC? Far from it, those morons, in my opinion are too busy discussing their gay lovers to do anything about SPAM. How many SPAM emails is that really? It is 13 Billion per day. The FTC went after one case, which was almost 1 million per day. The MA Attorney General filed on another, which sent out 10 million so far? But we are talking 13 Billion per day still. So the few cases are drops in the bucket and the puffery of public announcements that the FTC is planning on doing something ain't working one bit. The Spammers are making a complete and utter mockery of The United States of America's Justice Department's Federal Trade Commission's Consumer Protection Division.

Most of the SPAM reduction people are seeing is coming from the private sector and software. Not from the FTC. Haven't we had enough from that agency? When is Congress going to do the right thing and cut their budget by two-thirds and lay off those bureaucratic impotent misrepresenting fakers?
