Sighs of relief have escaped from millions of tunnel-carpal-syndrome-from-deleting-spam affected person when hearing that Bill Gates, former MS CEO has forecasted in Davos victory over spam
). His attack is based on filters (over what?), expensive computation (huh?) and a pay-per-send email scheme (ROTFL). If only, I guess, we would leave him run email world-wide, I guess.
What MS should do is to start suing anybody who is forging a MS-owned address, such as hotmail.com or msn.com. If I filtered them, I would receive half as much spam, but I can't because lots of people I know use them. By suing anybody who forges them, they would have to forge less-lawyer-happy companies, which could be easily filtered.
