Internet email Spam is where some website takes your email address (maybe you filled out a form or subscription with them), then passes your email address around to the world. You end up clearing out dozens of unwanted emails every time you open Outlook. And the more you “unsubscribe” to emails, the more the marketers just pass your email address onto someone else. You can never fully unsubscribe.
And Spam blocking software is not 100% effective, and sometimes takes up lots of memory and dogs out Outlook.
A solution to this madness? Since we have a national “Do Not Call” registry, I wonder if we should have a national “Do not email” registry. This would prevent many of the unwanted SPAM emails “before” they were sent, rather than forcing the recipient to exercise the “plug the leaking dam” routine with emails “after” they have been received.
Thoughts? Do you support this?
