    Yes, there are drawbacks, such as increased bureaucracy, difficulty in enforcement, and that not every spammer will be fined; but the concept of "if you spam, you're in trouble, bar none" is one that needs to be accepted across the board.

    I also like the prospect of limiting cookie information to track where you go, although there are aspects of that that are in the user's control as well.

    This is by no means a flawless action, but it's a start.

    Then again, who is the government to stop those Nigerians from asking me to help them get their money to them? [​IMG]

    Screw the retriction, I'm all for it. Israel did this recently too, and the article points to the EU, so the rest of Europe should follow soon.

    It did mention emails routed from other countries, but I wonder if their own 'Demon' will get hit routing them to us.
