The latest effort to reduce unwanted commercial clutter in consumers' e-mail inboxes has reached the U.S. Senate, bolstered by strong support from several high-profile online companies. The bill would require commercial e-mail senders to include an opt-out address in every message and would levy a fine of $10 for each message sent after a consumer has asked to be removed from a list.

I am sorry but spammers are NOT the problem.
The problem is the unscrupulous advertisers!
The fastest way to get rid of spam is to allow an ISP to block the domain name and IP address of a business that violates anti-spam regulations.
Businesses won't want to risk losing all their existing customers... Thus they won't be funding spammers and they will go out of business
