The U.S. Senate voted 97-0 Tuesday in favor of legislation that creates a national "do not spam" registry aimed at blocking a flood of unsolicited e-mail messages. "Kingpin spammers are threatening to drown the Internet in a sea of trash," said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon). "It is now time to put in place strong enforcement tools." The legislation must still be considered by the House, where some key members have reservations. In addition, the federal agency charged with running the registry has questioned whether it would be effective.

I'm all in favor of this bill, but until it takes effect, there's a much easier solution. http://www.knowspam.net is a whitelist and challenge/response service that stops virtually ALL spam. Not a problem anymore for me.
