I really dislike the email spam, and would like to find a technical
means to stop it.  I am not so sure we would be happy with the results
of trying make it illegal, though.

But just what is the legal definition of spam ?

If it looks like spam, smells like spam, tastes like spam, then it must
be spam!

Or is it like obsenity, the definition of which even the Supreme Court
seems to have trouble pinning down?

I don't think we really want any more laws that criminalize ill defined
