    Suprise for your woman...
    I have received a few hundred of these in the last 2 weeks... where's the FTC?

    You take a candy and get hard rock erection.
    This is not miracle. This is just Soft Tabs.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Where do we forward these for fastest resolution? Filling out an FTC consumer complaint takes too long.

    Is forwarding them to uce@ftc.gov the right action? This is what I usually do... just wondering if there's something else I am supposed to be doing...

    does uce stand for unsolicited commercial email? (Ex-Navy - pride myself at guessing abbreviations...)

    And I just forward and send.... no changes to subject line and no note to FTC - I'm guessing that inbox slurps into a database for action - no humans reading it (bet millions go there!)

    Please don't forward those to the FTC. I promise I will stop sending them if you will forward me your name, ss#, DOB, snail mail address and DL number.

    Yes: Go to firstgov.com and write your elected representatives. Let them know they sold you down the river when they passed the CAN-SPAM act, favoring the DMA who takes them to lunch more often than you.

    California's laws were far more effective and enforceable; CAN-SPAM is designed to make the appearance of showing interest in curtailing spam while actually being almost completely unenforceable, since it requires the participation of agencies which aren't given sufficient funding to follow through.

    Spam is destroying the Internet, and must be stopped. If every congress member recieved a complaint each time one of their consituents gets a spammail you can bet they'd finally understand the scope of the problem.

    they'd ban my account and label me a spammer...

    and my rep sends me an auto-response to my submits...

    citizens are unheard - we need a politician to run on issues like these - we're not even divided on these issues...

    how about a petition or national referendum - it differs from individuals letters in unity and simultaneous show of force?

    i think the FTC should run ads on tv - telling people to forward every spam to uce@ftc.org - then be made to show the daily count of complaints on their site - then we citiens can see if there's progress being made, or just a nice story being told... they should show the top 100 list each day - yank from their database and show on their site - this way consumers can know "the crap I got has been reported" and the stats show it going away so we know "and they're doing something about it"...
