This reply is coming in a bit late on this thread, but wanted to point out a few things related to spam.

1. It's not going away. Regardless of what the US proposes as legal measures against it. Spamers can just set up a server and "office" off-shore or in some other area of the globe that is out of US jurisdiction.

2. As a previous poster noted, the only remedy is to NOT give out one's email address and do NOT have email address displayed anywhere online, where spiders and robot slurp them up.

3. I highly recommend http://www.mailinator.com -- a free service that creates a vaporous email acct that you dispose of as soon as you're done with it. Visit their site for all the details. I use them all the time and they're fabulous. Again, it's free.
