I’m seriously thinking Canada is trying to attract scammers and to become something of an offshore zone for them. This is bad because it affects not only Canadians but because of the transnational nature of the Internet, it will also affect millions of people worldwide, including individuals from countries where there is real antispam protection.

As Armstrong once said, “One step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” We still have to see anyone getting jailed for a long time because of spamming, so persecuting 29 people may be a very tough thing to do. Some of them may even be working for some large businesses that have the power to lobby for them. But at least we’re getting news such as these. These should hopefully instill doubt, apprehension, or, better yet, fear on spammers out there, obnoxious e-mail marketers included.

This is a big step in the fight against spammers! The 29 culprits may represent just a small number of the many (thousands, perhaps) who scam their way into the lives of countless innocent people, but it’s a good start. It is a sign that the FTC is not just sitting down; that it is finally going into battle….As for Canada, well, maybe they do need a little coaching and a little educating from the FTC. Perhaps a little explaining can help? Maybe then they would see what mess they will create if they take the side of the spammers.
