I found the following line here:
Want to find some tools for fighting junk email?
It made me laugh. Actually a pretty good argument could be made for imposing the death penalty on people that send mass junk mail–assuming that sending junk mail should be considered a crime. As much as I hate spam I don’t think it should be a crime, but the argument for making the offense punishable by the death penalty is an interesting intellectual exercise for me. I may have hinted at it here before, I’ll have to see if I can find it and flesh it out a bit more sometime.
