This has been going on for a few months now and it doesn’t look like Verizon are willing to do anything about it. What’s rich, though is that most spam comes from inside the US! CAN SPAM? Yes, I can.
Wendy M Grossman had some interesting commentery on this a couple of months back. The thing that worried me about it is the ISP’s perception that they have to protect its customers from the evils of the net no matter what side effects are encountered – some of us are better equipped to deal with spam and so on ourlselves. Not saying such services shouldn’t be available, but perhaps they should be “opt-in”. 🙂
