The U.S. House of Representatives voted almost unanimously Tuesday that spam should be unlawful.

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?
