Just as there are degrees of seriousness in everything, I feel the same should apply to all UCE.

There should be a base penalty for all of it to begin with, but the most grievous forms of it, such as UPE (Unsolicited Pornographic E-mail) should perhaps have an enhanced penalty.

I feel the perpetrators of UPE should face both a stiff civil and criminal penalty, including the possibility of some jail time.

Unsolicited Pornographic E-mail has got to be the nastiest thing yet that has not been adequately addressed by itself.

I find it beyond offensive. It is harassment.

This would be a really great bill if it were enforced. I have been receiving more than four times the amount of spam I used to receive, and so far, NONE of the return email addresses have been good ones. Is there someone I could forward these spam messages to in an effort to curb the flood?

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
